God it’s confusing – all the God names I mean. It was a foregone conclusion that God’s Own would inspire a host of biblically dubbed progeny but Holy Registrar Batman, the list seems endless.
Godliness, God’s Own Country, Godlike, Godship, Godeera, God’s On Track, God’s Way, Godsana, God Help Us, God’s Creation, God Squad, God’s Valley, Godwilling, God She’s Raunchy (bet you they haven’t brought that name up in church!), God’s Son, God’s Secret, God Only Knows, God’s Honour, God’s Cobba, God’s Reward … and they’ve even named a yearling, God’s Tilla.
Well, yesterday it was the turn of the Sharyn Trolove trained God Help Her who proved far too nifty for the opposition when she scorched home to take out the Premier Signs Handicap over 1400m at Sandown.
Out of the stakes placed 2YO Volkiss, this filly is a granddaughter of the Group Two winning mare Kiss.
If it had been me, I would have had a tilt at calling her Kiss The Ring, but I’m already odds on for eternal damnation after showing a couple of Jehovah’s Witnesses what my door sounds like when it’s slammed shut.
Anyway, God Help Her clearly doesn’t need any help from me and yesterday’s win – her second from six outings (including three placings) – has certainly helped her sire’s persistent push up the second season sires’ chart.
Go with God!
