A horse named after President Donald Trump's tweet about "Covfefe" won the Breeder's Cup Filly and Mare Sprint in Santa Anita Park on Saturday, Nov. 2, a $1 million race. 

"Covfefe" is a three-year-old filly. Jockey Joel Rosario rode the horse to victory.

Covfefe is co-owned by Jamie Roth, who runs the LNJ Foxwoods stable, reported Fox Roth named the horse after seeing Trump's May 31, 2017 tweet, "Despite the negative press covfefe."

"We gave the name to her because we thought she was special and we thought the name was kind of funny," Roth told USA Today.

Covfefe has her own Twitter account entitled "RealCovfefeRacehorse." 

Saturday's race marked Covfefe's fifth win in six starts, and her sixth win in eight career starts, report 

"She's a champion, hopefully," said trainer Brad Cox.
