With some of the year’s biggest horse racing festivals now behind us I’m sure you, like us, spend a lot of time looking to place a bet on horse racing with Paddy Power and are left in awe by some of their interesting and sometimes funny names.
Officially, In order for a horse to be eligible to race under they must be registered with a unique name which will have to remain with them for life, so no swapsies! This is so it’s easy to distinguish each horse from others in a race and allows bloodlines and pedigrees to be more easily traced. The horse will also need to be registered with a unique name if it is to be used for breeding purposes.
With this in mind, it’s probably getting to the stage now where most of the easily thought of names are taken and you’ll have to look a bit further afield to name your horse. We think we have the solution, follow the below quiz and I’m sure it will give you a name for your (real or imaginary) racehorse!
