One of the most important horse races in existence is coming our way, and as the Belmont Stakes approaches, one thing is certain: the names will be half the entertainment. Horses named Tale of VerveKeen Ice, and American Pharoah, among others, will all run around a dirt track with a small human on their back.

Can you tell the difference between the rich-people names for horses and the rich-people names for boats? This quiz will help you find out.
