It’s a yes from me: Simon Cowell’s horse gets a name

The racehorse owned by British television stars Anthony McPartlin, Declan Donnelly, and Simon Cowell has been given an official name. 

“We had to name the horse because obviously it wasn't named for racing, so we had a chat with Simon,” said Donnelly. “His first suggestion was 'I think we should call him Simon.'”

The group vetoed that option and settled on It's A Yes From Me, in reference to a phrase often used by Cowell and other panelists on his television talent competitions. 

It's A Yes From Me is expected to start some time in the summer. This is not the first horse McPartlin and Donnelly have owned, but is the first for longtime race fan Cowell. No mention of whether names involving other popular Cowell phrases such as 'That Was Absolutely Dreadful' were considered.
