The girls were fascinated by the Kentucky Derby this weekend.
Fascinated, at least, by the horse’s names as we marveled at just how many different types of names there were.
The girls liked Bodemeister, named after Bob Baffert’s son. I preferred Daddy Long Legs and Rob cheered for Gemologist.
When I’ll Have Another burst in to the lead, we all marveled at his unusual name.
I could watch Katherine’s wheels spinning as she began to understand how much meaning could be placed in the name of a horse.
She looked up and said, “Why doesn’t anyone name their horse, I’m Going to Win This?’
Huh. Perhaps we should go into horse racing cause I think there just might be something to that name…
