    Why did they choose that name?

    I am hoping this thread may shed some light on horse names that puzzle me
    They're names that I wouldn't put in the Facepalm Names - Poor Horse thread
    and I cannot call them Brilliant and thus put them in that thread but I found them interesting enough to check the breeding but that didn't give me a clue
    Obviously not all horses' names have a relationship to their breeding but if anyone wants to check that I have not missed something in the pedigree please check

    Why Imnopumpkin (Art Major x Miss Madoff)

    Is it something to do with the fraudster Bernie Madoff?

    I don't know why they have chosen it but the Styx prefix seems to be from NZ breeders the Rich family. There is a Styx river near Christchurch

    Some names make you want to look at the pedigree
    Above Average was one such name for me (in at Bendigo tonight)
    Nothing to report on Above Average but his dam's name interested me even more than his:
    Woke Up Tired - she may take her name from her 2nd dam Mary's Dream
    but I wonder whether this is really why they choose this unusual name?

    Buzz Lika Bee was 2nd on debut at Hamilton today and although I can't find a link in their pedigrees, I wondered if there might be anything else in common with Sting Like A Bee - ownership, ..... , ?

    Think you're right with ownership. See a Tuddenham owns Buzz Lika Bee and a Tuddenham owned and for a long part/maybe always trained Sting Lika Bee.
