What better method to choose the first name of your baby than by leaving it to the dogs?

That’s the thought behind the corgi race put on by British online betting company Ladbrokes. Wearing capes emblazoned with possible baby names, a small group of adorable, serious-looking corgis raced to determine the name of the upcoming royal baby due in April.

Those betting on the corgi race anticipated “Elizabeth” to win and become the name of the second royal child. But it wasn’t Elizabeth who scrambled first over the finish line.
