Is this the best racehorse name of all time?
Unusual names are a common factor in life. Often times if you struggle to pronounce the name of a person they will kindly shorten it or ignore you entirely. In some cases, such as at yesterdays Tramore Races, a name will remind you of that other place special place you go to, to spend loads of money - Penneys. It turns out Penneys isn't the only place you'll feel like you're winning.
Yes, the horse 'Penneys Hun' came in 1st place during the 18:20 race at Tramore yesterday and the win was met with both tears of joy and laughter.
1st Penneys Hun 9/1
2nd Skeaping 3/1
3rd Tree Of Knowledge 13/8F

The horse won for trainer John Halley and was jockeyed by Rachael Blackmore. We're sure punters were delighted with their 9/1 win and felt truly great about saying "Pennys Hun". Although we're sure it caused a bit of confusion when it came to explaining their win. We'd expect it to go something like this:
Randomer: "What horse won it for ya?"
Winner: "Penneys hun!"
Winner: "P-E-N-N-E-Y-S hun!"
Randomer: "Are you alright?"
Twitter had a lot to say about the unusual horse's name and some of the ladies were glad to place their money on what was surely seen as a good sign at the races:
Penneys Hun just won at Tramore for John Halley. Might be the best-named horse of all time.
