Forget about race history, stats and pedigree for a minute. In horse racing, sometimes the most important factor to a thoroughbred's star factor is its name.

The field of contenders for Saturday's 2015 Kentucky Derby is full of interesting monikers — even if the horses' names are a bit underwhelming compared to last year's lot. There's no California Chrome, Intense Holiday or We Miss Artie in this year's field and also no ponies named after Tony Danza.

Check out the list of hopeful horses below and rank your five favorite names.
