Best Kentucky Derby Horse Names

This year is the 138th renewal of the “Greatest two minutes in sports”. But I find the most interesting thing to be the horses names. I don’t know where the trainers or jockeys or owners come up with these names but there have been some classics. But this year there is a whole new flock of horses with great names and I would like to list them off. This is no particular order.

Daddy Nose Best
1) Daddy Nose Best (15-1)

Owner: Cathy and Bob Zollars

Trainer: Steve Asmussen

Jockey: Garrett Gomez

Rousing Sermon

2) Rousing Sermon (50-1)

Owner: Larry and Marianne Williams

Trainer: Jerry Hollendorfer

Jockey: Jose Lezcano

I’ll Have Another

3) I’ll Have Another (12-1)

Owner: J. Paul Reddam

Trainer: Doug O’Neill

Jockey: Mario Gutierrez

Daddy Long Legs

4) Daddy Long Legs (30-1)

Owner: Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier & Michael Tabor

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey: Colm O’Donoghue

Union Rags

5) Union Rags (9-2)

Owner: Chadds Ford Stable

Trainer: Michael Matz

Jockey: Julien Leparoux

Prediction: Union Rags

His odds are so low because he had a bad race in the Florida Derby, where his Jockey, Julien Leparoux didn’t have a great race. But Union Rags is trained by the same man, Michael Matz, who trained superstar horse, Barbaro. Union Rags is a wild card and I like him in today’s race.
