Gutsy performance by Statue of Liberty filly, Manhattan Angel, who took out the 1100m sprint at Ipswich yesterday – her second win from seven starts after winning at Doomben earlier in the year.
Statue of Liberty has certainly inspired some terrific names: eg. Tempest Tost (part of the poem at the foot of New York’s Statue of Liberty), Bartholdi (after French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi who designed the Statue of Liberty) and Kolokol (Liberty bell in Russia) to name but a few.
Eliza Park doesn’t have any Statue of Libertys in the upcoming Gold Coast Magic Millions draft but we do have yearlings by God’s Own, Bel Esprit, Danbird, General Nediym, Fastnet Rock and Elusive Quality.
Some people spend an inordinate amount of time thinking up names for horses and Eliza Park is offering you a bottle of wine for the moniker we deem to be the best relating to any of the yearlings we have entered for the Gold Coast. Click here for the entries.
Of course, you’ll have to buy the yearling if you want actual naming rights, but I’m sure the new owners would appreciate your handiwork when it comes to registering the horse.
C’mon … have a bottle of plonk on us for Christmas. Email your suggestions to
