Our mare, Very Funny, is a daughter of Two Time Leading Sire, Distorted Humor. Distorted Humor has been passing along superior racing genes for a decade. We are excited to have our breeding and racing program carry his genes.
Distorted Humor was a good racehorse, winning eight races and earning $769,964. This amount of earnings was good for his racing connections, but is considered ordinary for a new stallion. As such, Distorted Humor began his career as a stallion with a stud fee of $10,000. This garnered him a rather unspectacular book of mares and, in spite of this, he became one of the most successful stallions in the U.S. and the world. His offspring were so successful at the racetrack that his stud fee peaked at $300,000.
What did Distorted Humor accomplish to reach such heights? Well, he started off with the Kentucky Derby winner, Funny Cide. We can probably all remember the Sackatoga Stable partners riding a bright yellow school bus to Funny Cide’s races. And the clothes some of them wore? Enough said about that. Funny Cide was a great story and a good example of how a small partnership with a well-bred horse can win the big races.
There have been an astounding 138 Stakes Winners, 18 of them winning G1 races. Of the 2,000+ sires in the U.S., distorted Humor was the leading sire by number of Stakes Winners in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2011, being the only horse other than Danzig to do this in the last 30 years. Distorted Humor is the #1 Active North American Sire by Lifetime % of Black Type Winners. Distorted Humor is the #2 Active North American Sire by Lifetime Yearling Sales Average at over $244,000. Distorted Humor’s offspring have won all three races of the Triple Crown.
