How many of you hoss-rac
ing fans think the naming of a
nag is as simple as naming a
son or a daughter? Don’t be
fact, only one in about 30 pro
posed labels are accepted by
the Jockey Club, the high cou
rt of the naming phase of the
racing game.
Restrictions are gomewhat
more rugged than is common
ly believed. Names are held to
14 letters and three words. The
spaces and punctuation count
as letters. Names prohibited
are those of famous horses,
famous or infamous persons,
names used or advertising pur
posees, and vulgar, sacrilegi
ous obscene names. Lastly, and
worst of all,'no name that has
been used during the previous
15'years can be repeated. This
restriction is the one that is re
sponsible for many tags being
tossed into the wastebasket.
quarter of a million labels
are on file with tthe Jockey cl
ub. Nearly all are an accumul
ation of the last decade and a
half. So, you see, the chance of
a repeat tag is nil.
Two of the nation’s top sta
ble owners, the Whitneys and
Vanderbilts, are especially ad
epept at picking clever names
for their thoroghbreds. Some of
the best are Hash, by Quest
ionaire out of Delicacy; Kitch
en Police, by Discovery out of
Galley Slave; Song and Dance,
from the Baird and Heel and
Toe; and By Jove, the get of
Rhodes Scholar Explosion.
Some very apt names are de
rived from one parent instead
of a combination of two. Exam
ples in this category include
Seven Hearts by Grand Slam
Gesapo, by Third Degree;
Shut Out, from Goose-Egg;
Easy Living, out of Summer
Time; and Next, from Now
What .
Although several stories
have arisen from the naming
game, the best is told by Art
hur Daley, New York Times
and Atlanta Journal writer. It
concerns two Irishmen who
where bitter enemies for most
of their lives. Finally they rea
ched a point where they made
peace—at least one of them
thought so anyway. The other
and more vindictive fellow
made what seemed the true re
conciliatory gesture.
‘ Pat, he said, “to show
what Oi really think of ye, Oi
would like your permission to
name me finest stallion after
ye.” Pat though this was a
great idea so he quickly agreed
Consequently the breeder of
fered free service o his stallion
Pat O’Toole, to anyone who
would let him name the get of
the mating. Thereupon the
Stud book suddenly blossomed
out with such lines as “A Th
ief, by Pat O'Toole;” A Drun
kard, by Pat O’Toole”; A Sc
oundrel, by Pat O’Toole” and
more equally obnoxious labels.

It is anticipated by railroad
officials that the wider use of
the rail-auto travel plan for
vacationers, which introduced
last year, will be even more
popular among the Nation’s
tourists this summer. Hugh W.
Siddall, industry spokesman,
who heads a Passenger-Inter
territorial Committee has pre
dicted that many car owners
will leave their own vehicles at
] home this year and take ad
vantage of this new program.
Under the new procedure,
the travelers can reserve a new
car at the time they purchase
their railroad tickets, and upon
arrival at their destination, fi
nd it waiting for them. The ar
rangements have been made
possible through the coopera
tion of a nationally known car
rental service with outlets in
355 cities throughout the Unit
ed States, Canada, and Hawaii.
