The Kentucky Derby is on Saturday. Lookin' At Lucky is the favorite.
It's a fine name for a horse. And definitely better than these names of past Kentucky Derby competitors.

Gold Shower – 1943
Sure, you can say this horse's name didn't have the same meaning in the '40s because back then there was nothing called a "golden shower." But then what would you call what we did to the Axis powers? Woooooo! U-S-A! U-S-A!
Black Servant – 1921
Oh, olden days. Such a simpler time. And an incredibly more racist time. Black Servant was foaled at Idle Hour Stock Farm in Kentucky. Weird. I assumed 1920s Kentucky was far more progressive.
The Cock – 1916
The Cock only managed to place sixth at the 1916 Kentucky Derby. Probably because he had to lug around all that extra weight.
The Winner – 1896
The Winner finished second-to-last at the 1896 Derby. Whoops. But "The Winner" is definitely a better name than "Second-to-Last."
