A name has been chosen for Owensboro’s new minor league basketball team. 

After a three-week naming contest that saw hundreds of suggestions, the winning name for the new franchise is the Kentucky Thoroughbreds.

The contest winner will be drawn October 21st, when General Manager and Head Coach Brandon Lesovsky will draw at random from everyone who suggested the name.
