Distorted Humor is leading stallion for 2010
Monday, November 08, 2010
As we head into the final 9 weeks of what has been a rather uncertain 2010 racing season, WinStar’s unwavering stallion Distorted Humor finds himself atop the General Sire List with progeny earnings rapidly approaching 7.5 Million. The race for seasonal honors is a tight one and there are three stallions all within $150,000 of the leader.

The only numbers likely concerning the chestnut son of Forty Niner and the Danzig mare Danzig’s Beauty these days might be the number of quarts of grain in his evening feed or perhaps the amount of daylight grazing hours spent in his personal paddock at WinStar Farm.

His three closest pursuers can count themselves lucky that “DH” is oblivious to how close the race is. Distorted Humor never shied from a fight as a racehorse and a very high percentage of his progeny bring that same spirit to the track on race day. It is that attitude, passed on to his sons and daughters that have carried Distorted Humor to the top of the Sire List.

Drosselmeyer’s Belmont Stakes victory along with Funny Cide’s wins in both the Derby and Preakness give his sire a Triple Crown victory all his own. In fact the Gr.1 fixtures brought down by his progeny read like a “what’s what” of American Racing. Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Stakes, Travers Stakes, Whitney Handicap (twice), Jockey Club Gold Cup, Haskell Invitational, Clement L Hirsch, Spinaway, Humana Distaff,
Queen Elizabeth ll Challenge etc.

Distorted Humor’s success over the years has been far-reaching and this year he boasts one of the top juvenile colts in Europe. Pathfork is unbeaten in three starts including a gritty win in the Gr.1 Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at the Curragh. The colt is currently second favorite for next year’s 2000 Guineas.

In a sport filled with so many uncertainties, Distorted Humor remains a constant.
