The Examiner is backing Huddersfield Town’s racehorse – but you could be the one to name her.
The two-year-old filly is in training ready for her debut this coming flat season but before she can run she needs a name.
A competition to name her closes at midnight on Sunday and Town legend Andy Booth will pick the winner.
The names put forward so far have proved a mixed bag.

Names range from the clever – Hooftobeaterrier and Downattheggpharm – to the obvious Better than Klopp or simply Mrs Wagner. Then there’s the comic Boothysnewknees or, bizarrely, just plain old John.
A certain Huddersfield takeaway, popular with hungry fans on matchdays, also got a vote – Marston’s Chicken.
There have also been a stack of votes for GGtwentythree named in memory of 23-year-old Town fan Gavin Grieg, of Golcar, who died of cancer last month.
There was a minute’s applause for Gavin – who had a heart transplant when he was just nine – at Town’s game against Cardiff.
The horse will be the first of a string of football club-linked racehorses syndicated by Blue Grey Chevron, run by professional gambler and Town fan Richard Ward.
Fans can buy shares for a lump sum and a monthly payment and get to go to the races as an owner when she runs.
Richard, formerly of Cowcliffe, is looking for a main sponsor for the horse.
The Examiner’s logo will appear on one of the collars of the jockey’s silks with Gavin’s name on the other.
The winner whose name is chosen for the horse wins a 1% share. Entry is by text message and all profits go to Town’s Keep It Up campaign which supports Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the club’s youth academy.
Richard urged Town fans to enter in their droves this weekend and has pledged another £100 to the cause if the total entry reaches 500.
To suggest a name text the word ‘horse’ followed by your suggestion to 82070. Texts cost £1.50 plus normal network charges with around 75p in every pound going to the charities.
