What the Nation is saying about Distorted Humor...

Once again, the “Apollo curse” comments are dragged out and dusted off. Someday, it will be put to rest. Will Constitution be the one to do it?Read More

  • drayton.nay · If you think Constitution wasn't amazing running down the Hutcheson and FOY winner then maybe you need to watch his Maiden race. If that isn't talent I don't know what you are looking for.... · 7 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · funny EVER put so much effort in ANY OTHER RACE. It is just another wagering opportunity and undue evaluation will just creat the classic paralysis by analysis. · 7 days ago ·

  • AndyScoggin · That just shows how tough it is to actually get the horse you want with all the outs and RNAs. It will be fun to follow your picks to see how they run. I look forward to seeing you again at BC13! · 204 days ago ·
  • CauseForConcern · Laurie, I have not been one to anticipate yearling sales in the past, but your article drew some interest. I was disappointed in the early retirement of Majesticperfection. He had beaten the eventual BC Sprint Champ, Big Drama, with ease, prior to his retirement due to injury. He was bought by Airdrie Stables, and, I think, this might be his first crop. Did you, by chance, spot any offspring of his at this sale? · 204 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · I don't like the polycrap, it smells, gums up tails and throats etc., BUT since it is the surface I see everyday, I play it....I have a theory that the nature of a polytrack surface has to do MORE with the daily fluctuation in temperature and the drainage of the cushion MORE than the top surface itself, AND when it is close to wearing out, the front end bias is extraordinary.......Since about 10 tons of Jelly cord has been added here over the last two weeks, speed should NOT be to big a factor this weekend at Woodbine where just about all the races will be sprints. · 364 days ago ·

As I go through and look at the potential contenders for the Derby and the Oaks and their pedigrees, it gets me thinking – if money wasn’t an issue and I owned a mare, which sire would I have her bred to?Read More
  • cocoa2 · Speightstown seems to be based off his wives, as far as distance goes. Haynesfield was out of a distance running mare while Speightstown's sprinters are usually out of sprinters. He is a good pick for any mare, but if you're looking for a colt who wants 10f and the mommy only wanted 8f, I think Hat Trick or Street Cry would be your man. · 369 days ago ·
Zaikov ran to his pedigree in his debut at Gulfstream Park Friday, capturing a six-furlong maiden special weight event by 14 ¼ lengths without much urging from jockey John Velazquez.Read More

  • cocoa2 · I haven't read the article but I must ask this: Can you imagine someone breeding to Drosselmeyer when Flower Alley and Distorted Humor are still alive and well? · 459 days ago ·
If this year's crop of Triple Crown aspirants follows the trend of the last decade, chances are good that next year's Kentucky Derby hero has made between two to three starts, has been victorious in one or two of those starts and has placed in a stakes race, possibly graded, between August and Decem...Read More

  • annmatt · As a footnote, I believe that IHA will get much more respect and will be treated like royalty in Japan. Look no further than Sunday Silence, the world's most successful stallion, who was rejected by American breeding interests. Also, there is so much misinformation about the Japanese Thoroughbred industry. Wikipedia has info about the extent to which the Japanese support the sport. Google Japan Bloodhorse Breeders Association Wiki. We could only wish for such support and dedication in the U.S. Charismatic is at one of the horses at JBBA stations. "The JBBA offers many programs to help small time thoroughbred breeders around the country. The stallions that they offer are often subsidized so that every breeder has an opportunity to breed to top stallions." I'm sad I won't get to visit Little Red in KY, but I'm more than a little encouraged that he will get the best mares, and his bloodline could use a dose of some outcross mares. I’m looking forward to soon to seeing some Little Reds making it to the track, and maybe one or two might make it to American shores. · 659 days ago ·
  • lynnev2 · Hopefully there is a clause in the contract that requires I'll Have Another to be returned to the US after retiring from the stud. · 659 days ago ·

  • shadowno · Cocoa2 if you read the 1st salvo directed your way you will see the dolt actually confirms your point regarding the inbreeding that has contracted and therefore weakened the gene pool. · 661 days ago ·
Which horse has the best pedigree to handle twelve furlongs in the final leg of the Triple Crown on Saturday, June 9 at Belmont Park? My Belmont Stakes alphabetical list continues with I’ll Have Another. Read More
I'd send my mares to him any day.
Quietly, one of the best performances on an excellent Saturday of racing took place in Oaklawn Park’s Essex Handicap. On paper the race looked like it would be Pin Oak Stable’s Alternation to lose. Although 2011 became largely a season of unfulfilled potential for the attractive son of Distorted Hum...Read More
  • Winplacsho · It's nice to see Alternation back, it seemed like he fell off the map after that subpar effort in the Jim Dandy. I agree that this horse is similar to Blame in a couple of ways: running style, under the radar by being midwest based & no triple crown starts as a 3 year old. · 799 days ago ·
The GIII JP Morgan Jessamine Stakes, the last of the Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win-and-You're-In" Races hosted by Keeneland, runs today.

  • jasen.mangrum · Somali Lemonade looked great today running into that slow pace! The pace should be quicker in the BC Juv. Turf, so hopefully Matz brings her back in a few weeks. · 915 days ago ·
