Horsin' Around: The Most Pauseworthy Names in Kentucky Derby History

Gold Shower (1943)

FINISHED: 8th
COMPLEX SAYS: Owned by the Irish-African-American scion of a Chicago-area chocolate factory, Robert "R." Kelly, Gold Shower...we kid (R. Kelly is neither Irish nor over 70). Whether it be champagne or beer, it seems that drenching people in liquid (II) is a very popular way of celebrating a victory. If Gold Shower had pulled out the W, we would've stayed away from any post-race celebrations, because a golden shower is kinky, but a gold shower would really hurt. Gold is a dense and heavy metal!
