What's in a Name?

December 14, 2016

Dear Partners and Friends,

As the holidays approach it is a great time to reflect on names for our DDIX squad of soon to be two year olds.

Importantly, Frank Smith says we have never had a group as solid from top to bottom as DDIX. Frank got me so fired up that I am planning a trip to Elloree to see them in January. We will do our usual breeze show in the spring.

In the meantime, your naming committee will be having a meeting within the next two weeks. We hope you will look over the pedigrees/hip numbers in the chart below and send us your best ideas! The naming committee will name at least two horses in the next call.

Reminder: Irish, stallion sounding (except for the filly of course) and humor works.

Here is the chart:

And finally, the question of the hour has been who's silks was PUCA wearing in her victory? Apparently, NYRA has a new rule that you can only run in logo'd silks if you are in a stakes race. Bill said the silks without a logo had been in the silks room and then one of the other trainers took them. We WILL get to the bottom of all this ;).
