When Flat Drunk debuted at Keeneland in spring 2017, the name elicited its fair share of chuckles. However, the 2-year-old filly flashed immense potential, winning her debut race.
After that effort, though, she was sold privately and, in a very rare happening, was renamed Bonneville Flats. It’s often seen as bad luck to rename an already named horse, and in this case, the superstition may be right.
Since being renamed, she’s won twice in 12 subsequent starts.
