You can't make this stuff up. A Breeders' Cup horse named Covfefe was a big winner on Saturday in Southern California.
Covfefe is a 3-year-old filly and won the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint by three-quarters of a length under jockey Joel Rosario at Santa Anita Park.
Big money poured in before the race that pushed Covfefe to a 3-2 favorite. Bellafina was second and Dawn the Destroyer took third.
More on the story from Fox News:
Covfefe's unusual name was bestowed on her by co-owner Jamie Roth, who runs the LNJ Foxwoods stable, after she saw a Trump tweet in May 2017 complaining of "constant negative press covfefe."
“We gave the name to her because we thought she was special and we thought the name was kind of funny," Roth told USA Today. Embracing the spirit of the name, the horse even has her own Twitter account that pokes fun at the president. Titled "RealCovfefeRacehorse," the account often plays off of Trump's statements online.

Covfefe fever spread across the country when an apparent typo from President Trump first created the word.
The tweet was soon replaced by this one:
Over two years later the covfefe craze is still going.

Imagine being so consumed by President Trump that you name your horse after a typo by him? It's all in good fun, though. And of course, this horse happens to be a winner.
