Thank you to everyone who submitted names for our 2-year-old colt by Street Boss out of Circleofinfluence. This young horse is now training in Ocala, Florida and will return to Sagamore Farm this spring. We're excited to get him named and optimistic about his racing career!
After receiving close to 900 entries, the Sagamore Racing and Sagamore Spirit teams have selected four whiskey themed names that are a fit for our young race horse.
The finalists are listed below, and voting will be open to the public until Tuesday, March 21 11:59 pm EST. Fans are limited to one vote, so we encourage you to get your friends and family involved and cast votes for your favorite name!
The fan who submitted the chosen name will receive a tour of Sagamore Farm and the Sagamore Spirit Distillery.
This year, fans were encouraged to submit names with a whiskey theme, inspired by Baltimore-based whiskey company, Sagamore Spirit. Sagamore Spirit Straight Rye Whiskey is an American whiskey with a unique mash bill and proofing process, which is cut to proof with the spring-fed water from Sagamore Farm. Be sure to listen to our Fast Horses, Slow Whiskey podcast here.
The colt's sire, Street Boss, is a multiple graded stakes winner, who also placed third in the 2008 Sentient Flight Group Breeders' Cup Sprint. His mother, Circleofinfluence is by graded stakes winner Eurosilver.
