Presenting your best Syracuse-themed Kentucky Derby names

You were all too good at this yesterday...

Horse Racing: Kentucky Derby-Workouts Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, we tossed out a very offseason-y idea: What would you name a Syracuse-themed Kentucky Derby horse?

It made sense that people would respond. Just didn’t realize they’d respond to the extent that they did. So now we get a SECOND article on the topic, naming the best of the numerous Syracuse Orange-themed submissions from both the comment section and Twitter.

There were quite a few quality names thrown out there, so apologies if yours didn’t make the cut.
