According to KentuckyDerby.com, the Kentucky Derby isn’t just a horse race, it’s also the greatest 2 minutes in sports. I don’t necessarily agree or disagree with that statement, but I do think it’s a super interesting event and one of my favorite parts of the event is learning the horses’ names. They just keep getting more and more interesting. At the time of this writing, Firenze Fire has 50-1 odds of winning, but there are several horses running that have much more intriguing names.
8 Horses Running in the Kentucky Derby With Names That Could Be Hilariously Misconstrued:
FREE DROP BILLY
Sounds like: a terrible nickname some kid got in junior high and was never able to shake because his friends are terrible.
Sounds like: a product my dad would definitely buy if he thought it would reduce the risk of a fire anywhere near his home or my home.
Sounds like: a new book about a WWII hero stranded at sea.
Sounds like: you know what it sounds like.
Sounds like: a poorly-worded tweet from President Donald Trump.
Sounds like: a sexy new perfume only available at Belk from a former cast member of “Big Brother.”
Sounds like: a pizza place?
Sounds like: a memoir from somebody who likely didn’t fulfill that many promises.
