Frac Daddy: Kentucky Derby horse name a tribute to oil field workers


WILLISTON, N.D. (AP)  Two Montana oilmen who do a lot of work in North Dakota have a horse in the race in Kentucky, as well -- literally.

Billings residents Carter Stewart and Ken Schlenker own a horse that is running in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.  It's named Frac Daddy, a take on the oil drilling technique known as fracking.

Stewart tells The Forum newspaper that the horse is a tribute to all of the oil field workers in America and especially the Williston Basin in the Dakotas and Montana.

Frac Daddy's odds of winning are posted at 40-1, but Stewart says he's optimistic.  He says he thinks the horse has a shot.
