The Prince officially has a name! A HUGE thank you to everyone who submitted; there were over 4,000 submissions and it has taken us some time to narrow down our favorite.
Our panel of judges have spoken and the official name is: Q B One
The winner will receive: Spendthrift Swag and an opportunity to meet Beholder! Congratulations! (The winner has been notified via email)
Why Q B One?
There were a few thoughts behind why we believe this name is the perfect fit. First reason is the obvious: it stands for “Queen B’s One (first foal)”. Second, the less obvious but important reason relates to football. In football, the starting quarter back is referred to as “QB1” – they carry the team and are considered one of the most well-known positions in all of sports (think Joe Montana, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, etc.). We are excited and have big dreams for this colt.
Again, thank you to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for more updates on Queen B and Q B One! In the meantime, catch Bolt d’Oro, future Spendthrift Stallion, running in the Santa Anita Derby next Saturday (4/7/2018) as he competes against budding rival, McKinzie.
