Champion Freshman Sire and Champion General Sire, Distorted Humor continues to add to his reputation as a Great Sire.
He has already sired 127 stakes winners and more G1 winners than all but two active North American stallions. He's the only active sire with winners of all three U.S. Triple Crown races, and is both the sire of a Kentucky Derby winner, and the grandsire of a Kentucky Derby winner.
Distorted Humor has the highest lifetime yearling average in the industry. His three-year yearling average is $290,460 (131 sold), 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 2014, two-year-old CURSORY GLANCE added her name to that roster, and was runner-up for the Cartier Award as champion 2-year-old filly. 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.
