In 1937, William Boyd married Grace Bradley. At the same time he acquired a new white stallion. He asked his new wife to name the horse. Grace was reading a series of books by Thorne Smith at the time. The series was called 'Topper.' Thus, Grace asked Bill to name the horse after her favorite book, and that's how Topper got his name!
