Names! (Associated with the Derby?)

I got my male yesterday, which, obviously is the same day as the Kentucky Derby! So I thought about naming him Julep, but my mom thought "it's too girly". (He's green, LOL!)

What do you guys think? Any good names that could come from the Derby? I thought about naming him after the winning horse but "Animal Kingdom" isn't that great. And my favorite jockey is Mike Smith but he was on Twinspired which isn't that good either... Thought about "Turf" for the type of race they run but I'm not sure if that's good.

Thank you all!!

Aww, I think Julep would be perfect! Especially since he's green!

You could name him after a previous Derby winner. Or whoever was wearing a green saddle blanket - that could be his name.

Or Calvin Borel!

After I named him and rightfully have been calling him Julep he has indeed began on another wonderful bubble nest!

He's hard at work at it. Not taking any breaks. ;) It's even better than the last one! It's really "thick" this time and not so thin and spread out. He's making me happy!!
