The 144th Kentucky Derby is Saturday, and every year it is filled with big hats, mint julep and interesting horse names. The last, of course, why we are here.
Calling a horse for America’s greatest race or even a difficult task. But we have a solution: name the horse with the theme of the Chicago Blackhawks. We know that the former Blackhawks player and current television analyst Eddie Olczyk would agree that this is a good idea.
The publication time for the big event is 5:46. Saturday. The race will be broadcast on NBC television with coverage starting at 1:30 pm, and also with an earlier cover (from 11:00 to 13:30) by NBCSN. Online streaming is available through NBC Sports Live Extra.
Of course, it is obvious that the aliases of the players are selected from: Stosh, The Golden Jet, Tazer, Kaner and Showtime, Sharpy, Mr. Goalie and Cousin Vinnie, to name a few. And if puns are the name of the game, that is Mare-ian Horsa.
