Memento d'Oro18, by Bodemeister out of Memento d'Oro, has received the name of Seahorse d'Oro. Old Tavern Farm, where she resides, held a naming contest and the staff chose the name from many submissions to reflect her lineage and head marking. We all look forward to the start of her racing career.

Old Tavern Farm hosted a virtual farm tour in collaboration with the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. The recording of that tour is below with participants of Foal Patrol including Seahorse d'Oro, Comme Chez Soi19 and Alpine Sky. 

Winning name for Memento d'Oro18!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Naming Contest for the Two-Year-Old Filly by Bodemeister out of Memento d'Oro at Old Tavern Farm. 

Seahorse d’Oro is the winner! Old Tavern Farm received over 600 creative submissions and ultimately felt that Seahorse d’Oro encompassed her lineage and head marking best. We all look forward to the start of her career.
