1. See this guy? This is one of the very first horses to be in the long Thoroughbred lineage. His name is Potoooooooo, or Pot-8-O’s, sired in 1773.
Pot-8-O’s acquired this strange spelling of his nickname, Potatoes, when his stable boy was asked to write “potatoes” on a feed bin. The boy wrote it as “potoooooooo,” and it amused the owner so much that he kept it as a name for the horse.
