Everyone loves an underdog story.

Horse racing fans and Stern Show aficionados alike were delightfully befuddled with the debut of a horse named Sal the Turtle, which raced Oct. 13 at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y.

The Sal Governale-inspired equine — owned by Bloom Racing — came in at 20-1 odds… and won the fifth race!

The horse’s name was quickly picked up by Stern Show fans on social media and even retweeted by Sal himself. Check out some of the tweets below:
