A Great Sire

Champion Freshman Sire and Champion General Sire, Distorted Humor continues to add to his reputation as a Great Sire.

He has already sired more than 150 stakes winners and more G1 winners than all but two active North American stallions. He's the only active sire with different winners of all three U.S. Triple Crown races, and is both the sire of a Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, as well as the grandsire of a Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner.
