I jus' posted Red Garland as a cool jazz name? That could be an awesome race horse name. How about The FOO FIGHTER..or Telescope. Pink Floyd. Rock needs to have some names in the horse arena. I want to name a horse.

As for real horses named after bands, there's Fleetwood Mac, New Seeker, and Zee Zee Top.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Saturday, 29 November 2003 20:47 (sixteen years ago) link

And, once, I had a three race accumulator on Fool On The Hill, Yesterday, and Michelle My Belle. None of them won.


(Sidenote: three horses in the same race about six months ago: Columbine, Guns Blazing, and Teenage Hero)

Coldplay....why did I start this?

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 20:54 (sixteen years ago) link

Disco Inferno or even the Traamp.

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 20:56 (sixteen years ago) link

Death Cab for Cutie almost sounds like a horse name.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:00 (sixteen years ago) link

Cut it to Death Cab and we got it.

You only said Foo Fighter because of Dave's buck teeth. Didn't you!

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:03 (sixteen years ago) link

Thanks AJA. One more reason.

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:08 (sixteen years ago) link

Haha, just a couple of weeks ago I was thinking of song titles that sound like racehorse names...

What are you thanking me for? (I'm asking)

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:10 (sixteen years ago) link

How about Weezer, if the horse is asthmatic.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:13 (sixteen years ago) link

White Stripes but I don't think Zebras are that trainable or necessarily quick.

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:17 (sixteen years ago) link

What about Queen. Might persuade people to bet on her.

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:18 (sixteen years ago) link

18 characters? what do ya' mean?

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:58 (sixteen years ago) link

18 characters for a horse name, remember that.

Why do you get to say how many characters there are to a horse's name?

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 21:59 (sixteen years ago) link

You're only allowed 18 characters when naming a racehorse.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:00 (sixteen years ago) link

Oh, ok. But why are you the one who said that.

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:01 (sixteen years ago) link

Because I know more about horse racing than anyone else on ILX and as such am fully aware of the set down restrictions that there are on naming racehorses?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:03 (sixteen years ago) link

Damn...jus' when I wanna name my horse after a Shakespearean sonnet. Too many characters.

Yeah but horses don't get slaughtered.

Oh, Aja, you innocent child.

What do you mean? Do we slaughter horses? Or is the horses best friend a cow?

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:34 (sixteen years ago) link

oh no...here we go!

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:40 (sixteen years ago) link

Here we go what?

Why is Foo Fighter in all capitals at the top anyway? Must be the favorite.

Ian Johnson (orion), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:51 (sixteen years ago) link

Jello. Turn you horse into amazing shapes with simple to use molds. Oh, and I'm leaving to finish my FOO FIGHTER tribute album all recorded with a rhodes piano and bossa-nova preset rhythms.

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 22:56 (sixteen years ago) link

Aja: Look into how glue is made.

They use horses hoves, or however you spell it, right.

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 23:06 (sixteen years ago) link

Oh, and I'm leaving to finish my FOO FIGHTER tribute album all recorded with a rhodes piano and bossa-nova preset rhythms.

Oh yeah, what songs are you doing covers of?

Aja (aja), Saturday, 29 November 2003 23:08 (sixteen years ago) link

Sorry Aja, bad joke. Didn't mean to steer you. I sequence techno stuff. Some heavy bass electro yet ambient stuff. Don't do covers.

cs appleby (cs appleby), Saturday, 29 November 2003 23:15 (sixteen years ago) link

Doesn't sound like anything I'd listen to. There was this one time I went to the movies and went in one of the restrooms there. They were playing some weired techno music. It was like torture for my mom and me.

I saw Deerhoof. My mom said they were adoreable and rocking at the same time. They have a very short singer.

Aja (aja), Sunday, 30 November 2003 21:05 (sixteen years ago) link

This "18 letters or less" thing has bothered me as it means Alf Ramsey's Porn Dungeon could never be a real racehorse name. (Sorry in advance to everyone who didn't get the reference there)

DJ Mencap (DJ Mencap), Monday, 1 December 2003 10:21 (sixteen years ago) link

And considering I'm willing to out myself as someone hopelessly and annoyingly addicted to horrible puns, how could I mention Saddle Creek yet completely ignore Thrill Jockey in this context?

(Aja, I haven't heard much Deerhoof.)
