Boisterous takes Man o' War S. to give Distorted Humor his latest Grade 1 winner
Saturday, July 13, 2013
Boisterous got a patient ride from John Velazquez to give the 6-year-old son of Distorted Humor a 2 1/4-length victory in the $600,000 Man o' War S. Saturday at Belmont Park. The victory pushed Boisterous' earnings to $1,297,910, making him the 11th millionaire sired by Distorted Humor.

Already a six-time graded stakes winner in his stellar career, Boisterous climbed to new heights with his first Grade 1 win in the 1 3/8-mile turf marathon. The $360,000 payday for Boisterous lifted Distorted Humor's progeny earnings for 2013 past the $3.5 million mark.

The Phipps Stable homebred trained by Shug McGaughey was the 7-5 post-time favorite in the field of eight. Boisterous settled in about a eight lengths off the lead in the early going, with Velazquez biding his time. After a mile in 1:37.35, Velazquez had inched closer, less than three lengths from the front.

Boisterous went about four wide in the lane, outrunning Twilight Eclipse in the final furlong to finish in 2:14.11 over the “good” turf

"I'm going to smile on this one, because this horse deserves to win a grade one," McGaughey said. "He had been training so good. We kind of caught a turf today we liked. I was looking for a little bit of rain. I'm tickled to death, not for me, but for the horse."

McGaughey said the next start for Boisterous could come in the Aug. 17 Sword Dancer Invitational (G1) at Saratoga, or in the Arlington Million (G1) at Arlington Park on the same day.
