I like this Discussion Thread..good idea QZF22. However, just to clarify...I have to assume you are not suggesting the name is honoring a disease but maybe in honor of a person fighting an ailment. Is it ok if people also post a name they have thought of and is special to them and one they would use if ever they had the chance to name a racehorse?
Afleet Alex's name has a very special meaning:http://www.metanoia.org/martha/writing/alex.htm
Nice blood horse article about the race horse Run For Retts http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/93999/more-than-just-a-name-for-run-for-retts
As is Cozmic One, for that matter.
