One of the most underrated weekends of the year is upon us. Masters weekend gets a ton of hype. Super Bowl weekend, Easter weekend, St. Paddy’s Weekend, and more all get plenty of attention and are constantly circled on calendars. Yet, this weekend seems to often go by without being fully appreciated.
This weekend, we get two fun events to enjoy before we have to go back to work. Friday is Cinqo de Mayo. That’s always enjoyable and you can find great deals at your local watering hole. It’s a fantastic excuse to go out and have some Margs with friends. Then, on Saturday, we get the Kentucky Derby. We’ll trade in our margaritas for Mint Juleps. Our sombreros for big fancy hat things.
They call the Kentucky Derby one of the most exciting two minutes in sports. It goes by fast, but there’s no lack of thrill. For me, however, I watch because I often get a kick out of the names of the horses. There are always some clever names and puns in the mix. I don’t know much about horse racing, so when I go to bet on the horses, I don’t go by the odds or their racing history–I don’t know any of that. I simply go by the funniest name. This year, we’ve got some gems.
I’ve decided to rank all 20 horses competing in the 2023 Kentucky Derby by funniest name. Which horse will I be supporting this year? Find out below.
