‘Horsey McHorseface’ is a very straightforward name for a racehorse
When it came time to name horse trainer Bjorn Baker’s new two-year-old gelding, he went with something pretty direct: Horsey McHorseface.
Everyone remembers Boaty McBoatface, the leading candidate in the race to name a $300 million British research ship, so Baker and his team decided a name in that vein would be good for the horse.
“Any publicity is good publicity,” racing manager Jake Bruce told CNN. “He's got as good a chance as any to make it and we'd absolutely love to win with him on a big day. It would be a) hilarious and b) great for the owners.”
Look at him. He’s such a horseface.
