We prove the existence of infinitely many subharmonic solutions as well as the presence of a full symbolic dynamics for a class of second-order nonlinear ordinary differential equations with a singularity of repulsive type at the origin and a superlinear growth at infinity. Our result, although dealing with a planar Hamiltonian system, is stable for small perturbations and we can allow the presence of a damping coefficient as well.
