The best horse’s name at the Kentucky Derby?

posted at 3:37 pm on May 3, 2013 by

I think I’ve found the horse for which I’ll be rooting this weekend:

Carter Stewart has been full of surprises over the years. …

Then last weekend, Frac Daddy, a 3-year-old thoroughbred he co-owns with Senior graduate Ken Schlenker, came out of nowhere to qualify for the fabled Kentucky Derby. …

That’s exactly what they did recently in making a last-minute decision to enter the Kentucky-bred Frac Daddy in the $1 million Arkansas Derby with hopes of winding up at Churchill Downs.

The gray colt finished second to Overanalyze in front of a crowd of 66,158 in the Grade 1 stakes race at Oaklawn Park, earning enough points to secure a spot in the final field for the “Run for the Roses” May 4 in Louisville, Ky. …

“Ken and I kind of consider this horse, named Frac Daddy with all the fracking going on, as a tribute to the oilfield workers of America,” Stewart said.

Recently in the Green Room:

I hope the horse wins, and wins big. I’d just love to see the libs heads explode.

“and it Frac Daddy by a length!’

Badger40, you calling your bookie?!? This horse was meant for you!

AllahPundit is probably rooting for Charming Kitten.

Be like naming a horse “I-DID-BUILD-THIS!”

I dunno about all the above..

But the part of EVERY horse that crosses the finish line last should be named Joe Biden.

LegendHasIt on May 3, 2013 at 7:35 PM

This year the best bet would be Gay Stallion…

I can see a trend:

Guns to Mexico

Michelle’s Trip

Global Heat

Dynamite Duffer

Karzai’s Treasure

Iraqi Sofa (okay, a little obscure)

Personal favorites:

Benghazi Speed Bump

The young horses who race either wind up cripples or in dog food cans, so yeah horse racing is so much fun as well as profitable.

vityas on May 4, 2013 at 9:41 AM

I see a trend here. Shortly we will see horses with names like:

Guns for Mexico

Swiss Cheese Checkpoints

Duffer’s Doze

Michelle’s Trip

Karzai’s Koins

Keystone Slam

Poll Disposition

Iraqi Sofa

More uncomfortable to the administration will be:

Benghazi Speed Bump

Laughed. Out. Loud. 🙂

Stunning win by “Orb”, 15th going into the last turn, went to the outside and flew down the stretch to take it by about three lengths.

I was once a part owner in a thoroughbred up in the San Francisco area named “Choice is Clear”, who won it’s first race also going from almost dead last, and flying on the outside down the final stretch. The goose bumps don’t stop for days.

Mismanagement by the majority owner lamed the poor animal, and he refused our input outright. We were just a source of money to him. Horse was eventually ruined, but by then we had insisted on being bought out.

But nothing will ever erase the thrill of watching that beautiful creature’s huge heart and determination to not let any other horse stay ahead of it as it flew down the outside like happened with Orb. Watching Orb brought back wonderful memories!

I was rooting for Frac Daddy, looking forward to seeing the leftists’ heads explode.

petefrt on May 5, 2013 at 9:24 AM

I want everyone to note that Frac Daddy is owned by people in the oil and gas business, and NOT by journalists, bloggers or reporters.

THUS, his named is not spelled Frack.

Why would we possibly want that?
