    So we’ve got a thread for names you like so what names bug you? What do you think is a downright stupid name for a horse?

    Personally my all time pet hate is "Your a Gassman" – wrong in so may ways.

    I also get bored by those that are called "Frank’s Dream" or something equally unimaginative.

    I defy anyone to come up with a worse name than Skidmark.

    He was a likeable type though, DJ – always followed through with his effort.

    Cheesy ones derived from the Sire’s and Dam’s names. Two of the worst cases were two full brothers who ran in England.

    Sire : Green Desert
    Dam : Green Leaf

    Two sons : Green Green Desert and Desert Green.

    Talk about no imagination.

    The formbook says that Skidmark once ran in a race with a horse called Pants.

    Very apt, don’t you think ?

    Captain Gerrard. Apparently named after a certain charisma-lacking scouser instead of his immortal equine namesake Brigadier. That one wound me up a bit.

    Yeah….he was usually held-up in rear, before stain-on.

    On fire Grasshopper. You also possibly win a prize for being the first person to quote himself!

    A £5 record-token will suffice, DJ. :mrgreen:

    Astonishing performance. Two gags out of it, can he manage the hat-trick.

    (It’s 1.01 he can)

    :D
