I know as much about horse racing as I do about Russian Literature– very little. But, I do love the first Saturday in May and everything that comes with the Kentucky Derby. Especially the names of the horses. It’s like we ran out of names or something.


Most Interesting Horse Names Racing in This Year’s Kentucky Derby:

1. Irap

Middle Eastern country or bold statement for a horse, who probably can’t even speak, much less rap.
