1. Magic Carpet Burns
This Australian mare’s father was called Foreplay. No, we’re not joking.
The British horse was bred using a stallion named Pursuit of Love and a mare called My Discovery, which makes sense.
Commentators had great craic saying this American gelding’s name, which is obvious in this clip.
4. Horsey McHorseface
The American thoroughbred was given his moniker after a ship in the UK was named Boaty McBoatface following a public poll.
5. Big Tits
Horse racing censors in the UK vetoed Big Tits so its owners registered it in France, where the phrase means nothing.
4. Hoof Hearted
Say it out loud. Yes, it sounds like ‘Who Farted’.
We love this Irish gelding’s name.
6. Oh No, It’s My Mother-in-Law
Commentators must love this one.
This New Zealand thoroughbred is one for Star Wars fans.
9. My Tent Or Yours
The Irish-bred, British-trained horse is owned by JP McManus.
10. Frisky No More
This gelding’s mother was called Frisky Business, believe it or not.
