Our Distorted Humor colt is an imposing individual, best described as a man among boys. He has size, balance and power, all of the of the qualities of a top equine athlete. He breezed a quarter at the OBS June 2 year old in training sale in 20.4, the fastest time of the day. He galloped out three eighths in a blistering 32.3 and a half in 47.1. What was more impressive was the way he did it, smooth and powerful, reaching out with his 25’1” stride. We feel this is the finest colt ever purchased by Blinkers On Racing Stable and his potential is unlimited. This is a colt with a sire’s pedigree and all of the tools to become great.
Our colt’s sire is one of the leading sires of our generation, Distorted Humor. Distorted Humor has 20 crops of racing age, 160 black-type winners and 4 Champions. He has progeny earnings of over $147,000,000.
Our colt’s dam is Tally Ho Dixie, by Dixeland Band, a stakes placed earner of over $100,000. Among her 4 winning offspring is the stakes winner and Graded Stakes placed Kyriaki. Her earnings to date are $276,656.
Our Distorted Humor colt will be based on the California circuit and will be trained by Mike Puype. Engagements: Breeders Cup.
Here is what Blinkers On’s Bloodstock Agent, Zach Madden from Buckland Sales, had to say about our new colt “Hip 827, the colt by the GREAT Distorted Humor, was in my opinion the best colt in the June Sale. He exudes class and athleticism. Physically he has great balance, a strong shoulder and beautiful hip. His 20.4 breeze at the under tack show was simply electric. A powerful work, strong gallop out and he did it well within himself. This colt has all of the looks and pedigree of a Top Class runner”.
