Covfefe, a young racing horse, earned $1 million for her win in the Filly and Mare Sprint.
Yes, you read that correctly. There is actually a horse named Covfefe, and no, it’s not a coincidence. The filly was named after the infamous 2017 Trump tweet.
Owner Jaime Roth was one of the many millions perplexed by the now-legendary tweet where Trump erroneously spelled…actually, we still aren’t sure what he meant to say. But whatever he was trying to say came out as covfefe, and that sounded like a brilliant name for a horse, to Roth.
“We gave the name to her because we thought she was special and we thought the name of kind of funny,” Roth told USA Today.
Trump deleted the original tweet but left us with the never-ending wonder as to what he truly meant by covfefe.
Congress later coined COVFEFE as a new act, stating that all Twitter communications made by a president are to be archived as official communications. Now, Covfefe means so much more. $1 million more, to be exact.
Taking part in the Filly and Mare Sprint at the Breeders Cup, Covfefe earned her 6th win with rider Joel Rosario.
It seems even without the COVFEFE Act, Trump’s tweets will forever live on, despite his attempts to delete them. As they say, once it’s on the internet, it’s there forever.
