A new racehorse has quite a memorable name-- Horsey McHorseface.

Australian horse owner Joe Rosetti came up with the jokey moniker after hearing about a public poll in Britain.

According to a poll, people wanted to name a $300 million polar research ship Boaty McBoatface.

They have not settled on a name for the ship yet, but Horsey McHorseface, a gelding, is expected to debut in Australia in mid- to late May.
