We've devoted plenty of time to coming up with terrible racehorse names. And there are some bad names running in the main race of Saturday's Preakness Stakes, like "Social Inclusion." The very worst horse name, however, had yet to be discovered until Michael Katz, our man on the ground in Pimlico, found it among the day's lesser events. Presenting a competitor in Saturday's 7th race, Extrasexyhippzster:
This would be a horrible name even if the components were all spelled correctly. "Hippzster" just drives it over the edge. Please note that ESH's mom is named "Extra Sexy Psychic," too. And, to be fair, that is a pretty sexy horse. Extra sexy, even.
Extrasexyhippzster finished in seventh in the Chip Lang Stakes. We were not rooting for him.
