Turns Out “Harass” Is a Pretty Amusing Race Horse Name (Video)
Choosing a good race horse name is an art. At the very least you want something that’s going to be easy to remember and sounds cool when the announcer calls it out. But the best race horse names capture something of the spirit of the horse and/or make plays on words or double entendres.
Want an example of a fantastic race horse name? How about Harass. That doesn’t sound all that impressive in the abstract. However, in the context of an actual race—with an excited announcer calling the action and saying things like “gets Harass going,” or “here comes Harass”, or “goes by Harass”—it dawns on you: “Harass” sounds like “Her Ass.” And that is pretty hilarious.
Don’t take my word for it, though. Watch Race 8 from Florida’s Gulfstream Park on Sunday, January 4, and see for yourself:
Is Harass a bit of a juvenile name? Of course it is. But are you honestly telling me it didn’t make you chuckle?
