Distorted Humor has the highest lifetime yearling average in the industry. His 2014 yearlings are averaging $282,067, and he's the only stallion to sire a seven-figure two-year-old of 2014 along with seven-figure yearlings in 2013 and 2012. From 2008 to 2012, he bred the best book of mares in the nation, with the highest Comparable Index of any stallion during that span. 

His runners comprise a Who’s Who of big-name horses of the past decade: DROSSELMEYER-G1, FUNNY CIDE-G1, COMMENTATOR-G1, ANY GIVEN SATURDAY-G1, FLOWER ALLEY-G1, HYSTERICALADY-G1, BOISTEROUS-G1, et al. In September 2014, his 2-year-old CURSORY GLANCE added her name to that roster, with a tenacious victory in the prestigious Moyglare Stud S. (G1) in Ireland. Distorted Humor is one of the nation's top two stallions by APEX Index (top 8% earners), which indicates the very top sires of consistent, money-making horses.
