Question of the Day: What is the Alabama-themed name of your Kentucky Derby horse?

New, 87 comments

Today is Derby Day. Name your horse.

Just because you can’t swing an invite to the best party in the Bluegrass, that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in the spirit of the Kentucky Derby. Free Drop Billy, Firenze Fire, Magnum Moon, My Boy Jack and other ponies with ridiculous names will be entertaining absurdly rich people in equally-absurd hats today. And it’s a blast.

So, throw a piece of Wrigley’s in your traveler of whiskey for a Gumptastic mint julep and tell us the name of your Crimson Tide-themed Kentucky Derby horse.

I may even throw the funniest/best one a prize.

We stole this idea, root and stem, from one of SB Nation’s funniest and longest-running sites, Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician (They cover Syracuse, if you’re a young’un and don’t recall Troy Nunes. It would be like us renaming the site “Chris Capps Still Scares Us.”)
