Introducing....The Green Monkey!
Honestly? I never liked the names "Smarty Jones" or "Giacomo", either....
Favorite name for sheer silliness--there's a horse in the West Coast mid-level claimers named "Spinelessjellyfish."
I never cared for the names Smarty Jones, Funnycide, Galloping Grocer, Hoovergetthekeys, Bob and John, Lawyer Ron, brother Derek, etc.
"Giacomo' sounds like the name of the theme ingredient on The Iron Chef.
Spinelessjellyfish was a fairly good horse:
