Six of the funniest horse names

As Cheltenham gears up for another festival starting tomorrow, we have found some rather amusing horse names that will always raise a laugh when heard over the tannoy.

1# Iwinyougetnothing

Was as someone feeling suitably smug after a court case or even divorce proceedings? Hopefully this horse proved to be a winner otherwise the joke would have fallen rather flat.

2# Wotsit

We could never remember his name. We'd say "Y'know, what's his name", and eventually Wotsit stuck.

3# Ha ha ha

Impossible for commentators to pronounce without looking stupid. It does seem however as though 'Ha Ha Ha' was aptly named he finished last in a six-race career and was pulled up on two other occasions. 'Ha Ha Ha' indeed!

4# Hoof hearted

Say it a couple of times and you should get it.

5# MayTheHorseBeWithU

The Michael Moroney-trained Maythehorsebewithyou was the son of top-class New Zealand sire Zabeel and not Darth Vader as his name suggests, but the force was certainly with him as he finished fifth in the 2011 Melbourne Cup, the race that stops a nation.

6# Horsey McHorseFace

A racehorse named after Boaty McBoat Face. He is now in training in Australia.
