The horses would be named:

  1. Swift Rahner
  2. Wash THESE Feet
  3. Bl. John Paul II's Second Miracle
  4. Therese Runs For the Roses
  5. Our Lady of Eat My Dirt
  6. Discalced Carmel*
  7. I'll Fly Away**
  8. The Dumb Ox***
  9. Shakin' the Dust Off My Feet
  10. Augustine Flees From Sin
* A caramel colored filly running without horseshoes
**token low-church Protestant entry
***Occasionally, other beasts of burden are allowed to compete

Currently taking odds in the midrash box.

I always wanted to name a race horse Non Sequitur, so it would not follow.

Not that it's expressly a Catholic concern, but how about "Gossip" for a horse name?

Fun post! I'd name my horse Prayin' Novena. I love the name Archangel's Adocate posted.

There's always 2nd Colletion (AKA Recollection). His memorial, of course, would be "Day of Recollection"...)
