    Remember a T-bred one few years back. Was in the now closed Post Office Hotel one lunchtime. Always looked at first starters and see if names related to breeding. Don't remember mares name but had wife suggestions in it... 'Bride' something or 'Other half' something I think. Do remember laughing so much could hardly breath when saw horse name and wondering how it got through.

    Race started and caller mentioned horses name and you could hear his voice change as soon as he said it. Whole pub in fits...

    Horse name changed after first start.

    Don't recall new name but old one...

    TORQUES HIT

    A Bathurst pacer some years ago was named Anaratta Detoor ! It only took one start before it had a name change. Clue: a locality near Bathust.

    Always a Virgin is about to have some pearlers! Whoseme father, dontknocktilutry and Busted (out of I'm sneaky) are just a few of the ones that caught my eye so far. The Yankee galloper Hoof Hearted is a cracker I think.
    For those familiar with Wagga will understand a greyhound name that my mates owned, Action at Saxons (not sure of spelling but something of the sort) I think it is named along similar lines to Lees Bathurst one.
    Gotashotaway was another well named horse with a good story behind it.

    A horse is a majestic animal and it deserves a name befitting. Some favourite names of mine include Tattered n Torn, Bridge of Friendship, Divide and Rule, The Persian Tiger, Paragon Of Virtue, Vain, Cap d'Antibes, Iga Ninja, Starglow, Starcraft the list goes on and all the names mentioned are gallopers from the past. The old saying is ''you never see a champion with a dumb name.''

    My favourite name is the ill-fated Perth galloper Gilded Venom ( Golden Snake - Daughters Charm ).
