    I like to play a 6 or 7 horse exacta box. Right now these look like the best overlays to me.

    Kentucky Derby 2016: How did the horses get their names?


    Some Kentucky Derby bettors handicap from past performances and video. Others eye the paddock and post parade.

    For many, it’s all about the name. This article is for you.

    The Louisville Courier-Journal tracked down as many connections as possible to find meaning behind the monikers of this year’s field:

    Gun Runner: David Fiske, who manages racing for Winchell Thoroughbreds, said Ron Winchell simply wanted a name with a kick. Arnold Zetcher did something similar with 2015’s Derby runner-up, Firing Line.

    Nyquist: Owner Paul Reddam, a hockey fan, has named a number of his horses after NHL players. This one earned his moniker from Detroit Red Wings star Gustav Nyquist, a player Reddam has never met but respects highly.

    Exaggerator: Keith Desormeaux says his girlfriend and assistant, Julie Clark, tends to embellish. “She’s a typical storyteller,” the trainer said. “I said, ‘Julie, I’m going to name a horse after you.’ Sure enough, this is it.”

    Outwork: The first son of Uncle Mo to win a race, he showed speed even before then, known to outwork other horses while stabled at New Castle Farm near Ocala, Fla.

    Brody’s Cause: Campaigned by Dennis and Susan Albaugh, the colt is named after their nephew, Brody. “And there’s no real big cause,” said trainer Dale Romans. He’s by Giant’s Causeway.
