The word on the street is that the town where Mambrino Baptist Church was founded took its name from a race horse named Mambrino. The original Mambrino seems like a stretch seeing that he was in Great Britain. Check him out here. More likely, the town was named after one of these. I’m going with Mambrino King just for the fun of it.
So yes, we are a church named after a race horse. Or at least that’s the story.
Update- looks like I need to go get some Mambrino King chocolate here.
