Gamblers cheer horse named Subprime

NEW YORK (AP) - November 2, 2008

For gamblers, however, Subprime drew cheers this week. That was the name of a horse that won the ninth race Thursday at the Aqueduct race track in New York.

It was the first win in three tries for the 2-year-old filly, but the name made her an instant crowd darling.

The horse ran as the favorite and paid $6.30 on a $2 bet.

Maybe it's a family connection. Subprime was sired by a stallion with another name inspired by Wall Street: High Yield.
