Re­run for the Roses: More foal names

The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY PAT MY­ERS

The Em­press is off on va­ca­tion, cor­rect­ing peo­ple’s gram­mar in other cities, so this week we bring you more hon­or­able men­tions from this year’s two “foal” name con­tests: I Week 1222 was our 22nd an­nual chal­lenge to “breed” any two names from a list of this year’s Triple Crown nom­i­nees, and to name the re­sult­ing “foal” that al­ludes to both par­ents’ names. Then in Week 1226, we had you “breed” any two of those win­ning names and name the “grand­foal.” The first con­test drew al­most 4,000 en­tries and the sec­ond al­most 2,000, and the E is happy to have a chance to share more of them. To­day’s Losers will get Loser mag­nets if they didn’t get ink in the orig­i­nal con­test. (See the orig­i­nal re­sults at­vite1226 and­vite1230.)
