No horsing around

I admit to being something of a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker, for reasons best expressed here. At the very least, I don’t think she deserves this sort of thing:

Actually, it’s a rule:

The following classes of names are not eligible for use:

1. Names consisting of more than 18 letters (spaces and punctuation marks count as letters)

6. Names of living persons unless written permission to use their name is on file with The Jockey Club

There are seventeen rules in all. And even if SJP were to grant permission, her name takes up twenty letters and spaces.

    She was kind of geeky cute before the anorexia set in.

    Going in the other direction, perhaps: if the MLP fandom needs more background pony names, they could start plumbing the old racehorse registries…

    (I doubt Hasbro could do such a thing and not run afoul of copyright, or not be able to copyright it themselves)
