Distorted Humor Adds US Gr3

Tuesday, 12th May 2009

In the US, former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a graded-stakes success when undefeated daughter Witty (Distorted Humor-Well Dressed, by Notebook) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the US$100,000 Gr3 Railbird Stakes (7 furlongs on all-weather) for 3YO fillies at Hollywood Park in California. Witty (ridden by Victor Espinoza for trainer Richard Mandella) defeated front-running & previously unbeaten Carlsbad (Rocky Bar-Kits Peak, by Pine Bluff) & Will O Way (Broken Vow-Willow Woodman, by Woodman). Witty (a US$400,000 yearling at the 2007 Keeneland September Sale) is a half-sister to Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Well Armed & took her record to 3 wins from 3 starts for US$115,800 earnings.
