100th stakes winner for Distorted Humor
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
Champion Sire Distorted Humor joined Dynaformer as the only active stallions in North America to sire 100 career stakes winners, when WinStar Farm LLC’s Savvy Supreme won the $60,000 Classy Mirage Stakes at Belmont Park on May 18th.

The 3-year-old filly also became her sire’s fourth stakes winner at Belmont in the past six days, and his ninth overall this season. Distorted Humor now reigns as America’s Leading Sire of 2011 stakes winners.

Carrying WinStar’s famed green and white silks, Savvy Supreme was making just her third career start in the Classy Mirage, and was coming off a facile 5 ¼-length maiden special victory at Gulfstream. Trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Kentucky Derby-winning jockey John Velazquez, she was heavily favored by the mid-week Belmont crowd, and did not disappoint, winning under a hand ride.

Savvy Supreme was sold as a weanling for $520,000 at the 2008 Keeneland November Sale. Bred in Kentucky by Brereton C. Jones and Racehorse Management, she is a full sister to multi-millionaire and Grade 1 winner Commentator. Savvy Supreme has a record of 3-2-1-0 and $69,525 in 2011.

Savvy Supreme joins Peter Pan S. (G2) winner Alternation, Drosselmeyer, and Much Rejoicing as Distorted Humor’s recent Belmont stakes winners.

“Distorted Humor has been with us since the inception of WinStar Farm, and he's been a consistently great sire deserving of this milestone,” said Robert Hammond, Bloodstock & Stallions Director at WinStar. “We've supported him from Day 1 and it's exciting that a WinStar homebred – that also happens to be a full sibling to Commentator, one of Distorted Humor's best runners – became his 100th stakes winner.”
