I'm gonna guess Miff.

I came to post about that exact feeling. I saw a filly the other day, and became a bit miffed.

Tonight the TCM channel is showing Ben Hur, which came out when I was a pup. I found it interesting to find one of the four white horses who (I assume) would become Ben's team in the finale was named Aldebaran. Didn't know the back story.

I decided to end my viewing - it goes for another two hours - just as a merchant hawked "silk from Damascus". Which brings it full circle.

The reason for my irritation was seeing they have released the name Regal Rumor to a 2021 foaled filly. I have always regarded the 1972 mare (by Damascus) as one of a kind. Jack Van Berg brought her to Chicago racetracks Arlington and Sportsmans Park.

Some horses are too dear to share their name (I hope).
