Distorted Humor colts sells for $1.2 million
Monday, March 26, 2012
A chestnut son of Distorted Humor hammered for $1.2 million at the March 26 Fasig-Tipton Florida sale of 2-year-olds held at Palm Meadows Training Center. The figure was the second-highest price and one of only three juveniles to sell for $1 million or more at the Boynton Beach event.

The Pennsylvania-bred colt, hip No. 96, was consigned by Lynne Boutte, agent and purchased by bloodstock agent John Ferguson on behalf of Dubai's Sheikh Mohammed.

“He had tremendous action, I thought, when he breezed (an eighth mile in :10 1/5 at the under tack show), and Sheikh Mohammed watched the video and thought the same,” said David Loder, who signed the sale ticket on behalf of Ferguson. “He had real proper action and he also seemed to have a real good mind on him.”

The colt, who was named Price is Truth subsequent to the sales catalog publication, is out of the unraced Storm Cat mare Secret Thyme; she is a half-sister to Acorn (G1) winner Forest Secrets and Grade 3 winner Rumor Has It. Price is Truth is also from the family of two-time champion Silverbulletday, winner of five Grade 1 races including the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and Kentucky Oaks, as well as classic winner and  Horse of the Year Arts and Letters.
