    Just a little thread to take fellow forumers' minds off the upcoming big Melbourne Carnival racing.

    Here's a few of mine.

    Soezetoc - Brisbane galloper from the 1980s pronounced So Easy To See.

    Irish Wristwatch - Adelaide nag whose name's purpose must have been to piss off racecallers.

    Analing, Sucarda and Bending Over - Melbourne horses from the 1990s which more than suggested things pornographic in nature. Trouble was racecallers said ANNA-Ling and SUE-Carda to eliminate those thoughts.

    Bowled Lillee - a handy 2/3 year old from Melbourne who was sired by Courtmarsh. Pure brilliance!

    A Gentleman From Verona - another 2 year old Melbourne nag which only had one race (I think). Something Shakespearean in its name but Bill Collins absolutely grilled the owners at the track and on radio for such a stupid name. I think the owners retired it out of embarassment.

    Probably the greatest of all time - Waikikamukau.

    And one of my favourites of all time - Dead Cat Bounce. Chucked a lazy $50 on it in an early race at Kembla Grange with a massive hangover one Saturday about 12 years ago for $550 return. Everything I touched turned to pineapples and redbacks.

    Things went weird that evening and I ended up at the South Nowra's chapter of the Hell's Angels until the sun came up the next day.

    Hence The Hangover 2.

    Could have been sired by Prince of Pirates who raced in central NSW during the late 2000s.....

    .....except it was a gelding.

    We had to name the horse in our syndicate.

    My suggestion was 'Watchmeneighneigh' but they vetoed it... lol

    If I ever own a racehorse, I'm going to call it "Emmbee Seal",
