Vera Dreadful

Story behind your name: After months and months of toiling over potential derby names I finally realized it was right in front of me the whole time. My Grandmother... She came to a bout I was NSOing and at the half I asked her "How do you like the bout so far?" She replied "If I was about 20 years younger I'd be doing that." As she coyly points to the track. It hit me like a ton of bricks, this strong, independent woman still had adventure in her heart. And from that Vera Dreadful was born.
