Help Us Name the Mojo Trio!
Mojo started the New Year and its 10th Anniversary giving our Fans the opportunity to participate in the naming of Mojo’s three new horses. (The new names will be announced on February 2.)
“We want our Fans to be part of the Mojo action,” states Fred Taylor, Jr., Mojo’s CEM, “And, there is no better way to get involved than by helping us name our Runners and following them through their racing careers."
Since 2013, Mojo has invited its fan base to offer their thoughts on names for the horses that have been purchased from either a yearling or two-year-old in training sale. This is the fourth time that Mojo has used an online survey to gather the results.
“We start with ideas from our Partners and then let our Fans vote,” Fred Explains. The Mojo Partners come up with a list of names for each horse that is checked against the Jockey Club’s Online Name Registry. The Capital Partners vote on the available names. The top three names are placed in a survey. The survey is posted on Mojo’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and our Fans are invited to vote. Our Fans can also provide their ideas if they like. After a designated time frame, the name with the most votes is submitted to the Jockey Club for approval (the others are held as back-up options).
“Most of the time, the Jockey Club approves our choices, but sometimes the popular name is too close to a name already registered and it isn’t approved,” Fred points out. “I like names that are clever combinations of the Sire and Dam.”
The three horses to be named are:
Colt by Broken Vow out of La Concerto
Colt by Haynesfield out of L.A. Dreamin
Filly by Macho Uno out of Shebelongstoyou
All three horses were purchased from the 2015 Keeneland September Yearling Sale and are now 2YOs.
