What's In A Name?

Post by barryf on Sat Apr 11, 2015 4:01 pm

There was a time among some superstitious folk that changing a horse's registered name would lead to bad luck.

But those feelings can be regarded as outdated when considering these changes:-

From 2013 Sales; Raell's Delight became Express Stride, Jewels runner up and life time earnings of $132395 to date.

                       Crown Me became Have Faith In Me, this year's leading 3  year old with wins in NZ and Northern Derbies, Sales Series Final etc.etc.- current earnings $475,381.

And now, The Brave, passed in at the 2014 sales for $37000 and subsequently bought by the Steven Reid family group for $40,000- renamed Art Form, eye popping winner at his first start at Franklin last Friday night.

Maybe the superstitious ones will initiate more name changes in the future, in the hope it will bring good luck!
