Could there possibly be a more timely story?

Go on, do it. www.inglis.com.au.
Flick through to Lot 541.
It is for a bay colt offered by Fairview Park stud.
And here is the breeding: ASTERN for the winning stakes placed mare UNIMPEACHABLE!
With the farce going on in the US right now re the impeaching of the President, this colt’s pedigree is overwhelmingly timely.
We’ll look at potential names in a minute, but just wait. There is more in this pedigree.
Unimpeachable, who won at Randwick and was placed in the Gr 3 Adrian Knox and Listed Mona Lisa Stakes, is from a mare called Dubious Affair. She is a sister to INTRIGUING and a half-sister to SAUCY AFFAIR.
It’s almost like this entire family tree was named for this impeachment moment in the US.
This is Astern’s first crop.
And the word astern means at the back of a ship or aircraft. So now, ok, let’s play with potential names and I welcome your nominations below too please.
Donald John (the president’s first 2 names)
Obstruction Of Congress
Abuse Of Power
Democrats My Asstern
Articles Of Impeachment

Mr Marla Maples
Over to you. Let’s find the perfect name for this colt.
