Distorted Humor Son Sets US Track Record
Meanwhile former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a US track record to his progeny record when gelded son Flank Drive (ridden by John Jacinto for trainer Wilson Vittur) set a new mark of 1min 3.36sec for 5.5 furlongs on the opening day of the new course at Ellis Park, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The track's surface was overhauled as part of major rebuilding efforts after a tornado destroyed significant portions of Ellis Park in November.
