    Hi everyone!
    I have recently just bought my first horse! He is a 17hh, 8yo bay OTTB gelding named Atlas.
    I am registering him and I have to pick 5 show names that I like in case the first one I like is taken.
    I'm not very creative with naming things so I thought I'd sign up to something like this!
    I will give you some background information on Atlas if that helps..
    -
    Atlas was born at a Godolphin stud named Darley in Australia. He was born from Street Sense (USA) out of Stippled (AUS). His father is the brother of Winx (a famous Australian racehorse). Atlas loves to jump, he LOVES his food more than anything and he has the best personality in the world. He has one white coronet.

    I can't think of anything else but let me know! I hope this all helps.

    If he's an OTTB then he already has a registered name?

    No, he doesn't. He hasn't been registered with a registry. I asked the previous owners.

    I’m confused, does he have a lip tattoo? I thought all racing tb’s had a tattoo and a registered name?

    If he hasn’t got that then he is TB not an OTTB!

    But still.. an OTTB has to be registered. You can't race a grade horse, right?

    I like playing off of "Atlas," myself - great name!

    If looking from a mythological sense:
    - World on My Shoulders
    - Hold Up the Sky

    There's also the cartography-related version of "atlas," of course - not sure which it is!
