Distorted Humor's Boisterous pulls away late in Monmouth Stakes (G2)
Sunday, June 09, 2013
Going off as the even-money favorite, Boisterous proved much the best as he pulled away from a talented Monmouth Stakes (G2) field. With a purse of $200,000, the multiple graded stakes winner brought home the $200,000 purse for trainer Shug McGaughey and owner Phipps Stable.

“That sure worked out how we hoped," said assistant trainer Buzz Tenney. "This horse likes to put himself in the race early, not necessarily on the lead, but right up with the leaders.  I really liked our chances when I saw him sitting in fourth behind the leaders."

Now a winner of ten races during his career, the son of Distorted Humor notched his sixth graded stakes win with a late charge that overtook front-running longshot Two Notch Road.

“I had the absolute perfect trip all the way around there," said jockey John Velazquez. "The horse on the lead (Two Notch Road) I know is a good horse because I rode him last year.  I knew he would carry me a pretty far way.  We got squeezed around the quarter pole but once we got to the outside it was over.  It’s fun to ride ones like this.”

Winner of $937,910 lifetime, Boisterous' lifetime record now stands at 24-10-3-2.
