no but the best part is how he got the name:
his name was originally “potatoes,” and his owner, willoughby bertie, told the stable lad who helped him to write the horse’s name on a feed bin. the boy misheard it as, literally “pot-eight-o’s” and wrote it with 8 o’s. bertie found it so funny that he kept that as the horses name.

okay but
why would you name a stallion ‘potatoes.’

Why wouldn’t you?

Relevant to my blog so much.
What’s also great about this horse is that one of his offspring was also named “Asparagus.”
