Help me name my OTTB


I just picked up my new boy this July off the track. He's won 168,000+ and is 8 years old, so I figured a new name for a new life would be fitting.

Track Record:

Registered Name: Nene Horse Pedigree

So, his registered name is Nene (pronounched Nen-ay, according to his track trainer). The problem is I've been calling him this for so long that it's beginning to stick! And it's such a dorky name.

He's a very sweet naturned, gentle hearted boy. For recently coming off the track there's no real stupid/spookyness/antsyness to him. He's just a quiet soul.

He needs a sweetheart of a name!

How about Sweetheart? It looks like he's got a slightly lopsided heart on his forehead

now, this is kind of a wierd name, but the "Nene" is a goose native to Hawaii and in danger of extinction. Could you call him "Goose".
Wasnt' that also a name of one of the Fliers in "Top Gun"?

I kind of like "Goose".

Goose is so cute! I'll add that to my list of considerations. :)
And I love Top Gun! Maverick, Ice Man! I'm liking Goose!
