Racehorse Names from the Parlance of Our Times

Who knows what racehorse names mean? "Secretariat"? "Seattle Slew"? The inventive naming is the coolest thing about horse racing. After seeing "Wildandcrazyguy" in the recent Derby, I starting thinking how we could use the parlance of our times, as expressed in The Big Lebowski, as a way to derive more racehorse names.

. . . who's got some?

...okay, now I've gone from trying to think of actual viable names for racehorses to just rattling off my favorite lines from that movie. Please accept my deepest apologies.
