NYT---Soon after the story broke last year that then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer had been a customer of a high-priced prostitution ring, the owners of Town Prowler, a 2-year-old thoroughbred, changed his name.

They drew inspiration from a headline in a New York City tabloid: Luv Gov.

It took Luv Gov 10 tries to win his first race, and as a long shot in the Preakness on May 16, he finished eighth. Now Luv Gov’s trainer, D. Wayne Lukas, has decided to go for the longest leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, on June 6.

(His Name is Mr. Ed)

A horse is a horse
Of course of course
And no one can talk with so much remorse,
Of course
That is, of
Unless the horse
Is the famous Elliot!

Go right to the source
And ask with great moral force
He'll give you the answer that you'll endorse
About that crooked Wall Street bourse
Talk to Elliot!

People yakkity-yak a blogging streak
And waste your time of day
But Elliot will never speak
Unless he has some bloggering to say!

Oh, a horse is a horse
Of course, of course
And this one's a genuine tour de force
You never heard of a talking horse?

Well, listen to this:
". . . I am Elliot!
