Distorted Humor 2YO tops British Group 3
Saturday, September 03, 2011

Distorted Humor's 2-year-old daughter Shumoos finished with a determined run to annex her first stakes win in the Group 3 Sirenia S. at Kempton Park in Great Britain on Sept. 3.

The chestnut filly, who was tabbed a “TDN Rising Star” after her sparkling debut victory on May 28, becomes the 106th career stakes winner, 16th 2011 stakes winner, for her sire.

In the Sirenia (G3), Shumoos sat in fourth for most of the six-furlong contest on the all-weather track, then wore down pacesetter Vocational in the final furlong to win by a head.

"We've been trying to get her to settle better, and the ground was just too soft for her at York last time," conditioner Brian Meehan told PA Sport. "She was a little unsure of the surface in the early stages, but the result never looked in doubt at the end. We'll stick at six furlongs at the moment, and her next start is likely to be in the Cheveley Park S. (G1 at Newmarket Sept. 24)."

Shumoos was bred in Pennsylvania by Brushwood Stable. She is the first foal out of Wile Cat, who was a $1.3 million seller at the 2004 Keeneland September yearling sale. Unraced Wile Cat is a full sister to La Canada S. (G2) winner Cat Fighter. Both are out of Strategic Maneuver, who won four graded stakes at age two.
