An LSU fan has grown into a habit of naming race horses after star Tigers running backs.
Staton Flurry, owner of Flurry Racing Stables in Hot Springs, Arkansas, shared a photo Thursday on Twitter of his new horse named Guice after LSU’s Derrius Guice.

Flurry also owns a horse named Fournette after now former LSU running back Leonard Fournette. Last July, Fournette the horse won a race at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York and Fournette the person congratulated the victory.

In April, Flurry tweeted that Fournette the horse was training back at renowned horse racing facility Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky and would “hopefully” be back racing in late May or early June.
