Friday scatblogging – horsing around with Scat Daddy

Who could say Neiiigggh to a horse named Scat Daddy? Just don’t look a scat horse in the mouth … or elsewhere.

One of South Africa’s top 4-year-old Thoroughbreds, Scat Daddy is headed east to Australia for some “stallion in the paddock” (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) time. Some well-earned horsing around.

Scat Daddy was good enough to race in the 2007 Kentucky Derby, after winning the Florida Derby. He finished 18th in a 20-horse field at Churchill Downs.

That’s all good enough to get him a stud fee of $16,500 Australian.

All we need now is for him to sire a foal, to be named …

Go Scat Daddy.

Then, three years from now, we can break sacred tradition at Churchill Downs and have a horse wearing advertising on its racing silks.
