March 30, 1961: Jim Murray takes a look at the names for horses in harness racing and  thoroughbred racing, and throws in auto racing for good measure. 
 
Thoroughbred racing, I am glad to say, is a lot more careful about the name of its plugs. The Jockey Club sits in judgment on this and you have to come up with a name that has no more than 15 letters, no more than 3 words, does not duplicate the name of a famous horse of the past (a plater's name is not retired to the glue factory with him, however) and does not offend good taste.
