    If anyone calls NO EXCUSE NEEDED

    NO EXCUSES NEEDED

    again, I will hammer them one.

    John McRirrick simply can’t pronounce Meshaheer, but instead calls the poor horse MESHASHEER.

    Pitman and Scu are the classic ones for not being able to pronounce names properly, and so they did with the National runners.

    As for funny and close to the edge names I can only think of these ones:

    Hoof Hearted<br>Mary Hinge<br>Aonfocaleile<br>Geespot (by Pursuit of Love ex My Discovery!)

    Try and pronounce a couple of those at commentator’s speed.

    Can you think of any more?

    along similar lines, i always thought "BRASS TRAP" would be quite a good (and subtle) name!

    There was an application by a lady who wanted to name her horse after her friend but was turned down because it was felt that the friends name could not possibly be real.

    <br>The friends name was Les Bowes.

    I read somewhere that an owner wanted to call their horse Heezaputz and it was turned down – did it become Heezapistol instead ….?

    Wasn’t there one called ‘Wear the Fox Hat’ or something similar or was that one that got nailed the beaurocrats. Don’t suppose Pheasant Plucker got through either !

    One that got through a few years ago was "Who Gives a Donald" – the owners named it so that the commentator would say something like "and the leader is… who gives a donald?"

    I didn’t get the joke until I realised it was rhyming slang – but then I am very thick!

    Lol@ Mary Hinge! I think that was Kenny Everet’s (and Barry Cryer, the writer) original name for Cupid Stunt back in the 80’s. <br>

    The legend that is Hiram B Birdbath deserves a mention in this thread as well.
