    Okie Dodger

    Hi there,

    I read an article and saw a name for a horse which is Okie Dodger.
    I'd like to know what "Okie Dodger" mean, but can't find its meaning by googling.

    Here is the context:

    A man try to soothe his horses after the stable's on fire.
    "Anjo, Diva, Little Biscuit, Okie Dodger, Be calm. Be strong, You are all safe."

    Thank you very much for your kind help.

    There is no rule that the names of horses must mean something.

    That said, did you look up "Okie"?

    Racing horses have to have unique names- they often mean nothing, like forum names.

    Registered horses, yes. You will find that race horses often have names that combine the names (or themes associated with the names) of its parents.
