Horsing Around

21 Oct
I never knew Horse Racing existed as an organized sport in Pakistan. I am obviously ignorant. Horse racing in Pakistan even has a website. And newspapers, produce the results of horse races. Recently Dawn printed a list of horses that participated in a race. JQ sent me this list of names.

The names are reproduced here as they appeared in the paper, without editing. My favorites are in bold.
