Itsaknockout, Ocho Ocho Ocho, Keen Ice and American Pharoah.
These are just a few of the oddly named thoroughbreds that will race Saturday at Churchill Downs in the 141st Kentucky Derby — the first leg of the Triple Crown series.
The names for these prize-winning racehorses might be whimsical, but the name-approval process is fairly dull and bureaucratic.
