Kentucky Derby Horse Names That Sound Like A Guy's "Manhood"

It's generally accepted that this is one of the worst Kentucky Derby fields in years and the event is probably more about the funny hats worn by the celebs in attendance more than it is the mediocre horses in the race. So analyzing the race is pointless, why not talk about something fun? The names...

Race horse names are often odd and in the case of a horse like "Stay Thirsty" are kind of an advertisement for where the owner made his money. Stay Thirsty is owned by the guy who started Vitamin Water. But the best names are the ones where owners try to make the horse sound majestic because it always ends up sounding like a name a guy might give his... you know, "manhood" as a joke.

Last year's derby had some great names like that. American Lion, Noble Promise and Awesome Act. The 2009 field featured horses like; Mr Hot Stuff, Musket Man, Regal Ransom and my favorite "Pioneer of the Nile."

This year has a particularly good field of ridiculous names that kind of sound like "manhood."

Brilliant Speed - This might be the name someone else gives it...
Decisive Moment - Yes.
Dialed In - Kind of weak, but it works.
Master of Hounds - You can interpret this one for yourself.
Mucho Macho Man - Most obvious of the field
Shackleford - This may or may not work, but it made me laugh.
Midnight Interlude - Could also have been a Luther Vandross song.
