After contesting a very rapid pace with Strongerthanuknow early in the five-furlong turf affair, the duo were joined by Miss J McKay to their outside coming into the stretch. Shortly thereafter, Miss J McKay veered in sharply, bumping Foolish Humor. After review by the stewards, Foolish Humor was awarded the win.
“I think I would have won the race if (Miss J McKay) didn’t interfere with us like that even though that horse seemed to have a lot of momentum,” said jockey Paco Lopez. “You can’t tell for sure. But she hit me and then I bumped the horse inside me (Strongerthanuknow) pretty hard.”
“From the first few breezes I knew she was going to be a nice one,” added trainer Wesley Ward. “She did everything right. She’s very quick. She is going to have a big future.”
Foolish Humor is now two-for-three lifetime and has earned $89,000 for Andrew Farm. She is the first foal out of Foolish Cause, who is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner and $1.6 million earner Get Stormy.
Bred by Gabriel Duignan et al, Foolish Humor sold for $200,000 at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Summer Yearling sale.
