Distorted Humor filly sells for $600,000 at KEE SEPT
Monday, September 12, 2011

Day two of the Keeneland September yearling sale saw a grand-looking chestnut filly by Distorted Humor bring a final bid of $600,000 from agent Buzz Chace and Terry Finley of West Point Thoroughbreds. The figure was the seventh-highest price of the day and nearly twice the two-day median price of $325,000.

Consigned by Mr. and Mrs. Jody Huckabay's Elm Tree Farm LLC as hip No. 186, the filly is a half-sister to the late Master Command, winner of the Grade 2 New Orleans H. and four other graded stakes, and Aurora Lights, a Grade 3 winner in the U.S. and Canada. Their dam Lady Lochnivar is a half-sister to Grade 1 winners Al Mamoon and La Gueriere.

The $600,000 filly came on the heels of a rock-solid Day 1 for Distorted Humor, who currently leads all North American sires with 16 stakes winners already in 2011. On opening night Sunday, five of six Distorted Humor yearling offerings sold - all in a tight range showing an unmatched consistency. The five sale prices include a $550,000 colt, a $525,000 colt, a $500,000 filly, $450,000 colt and a $350,000 colt.

Twenty Distorted Humor yearlings are slated to sell in Book 2 this week at Keeneland September.
