Distorted Humor Adds US Gr2

Monday, 26th March 2007

Former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a US group success when Gr1-winning 6YO gelding Fourty Niners Son (Distorted Humor-Cindazanno, by Alleged) scored a 1-length victory in the US$200,000 Gr2 San Luis Rey Handicap (12 furlongs on turf) for 4YOs & up at Santa Anita Park in California. Fourty Niners Son (ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer Neil Drysdale) defeated Notable Guest (Kingmambo-Yenda, by Dancing Brave) & Prospect Park (Sadler's Wells-Brooklyn's Dance, by Shirley Heights). Kentucky-bred Fourty Niners Son (a half-brother to Gr1-winner Cindy's Hero) took his record to 6 wins (also including the 2005 Gr1 Clement Hirsch Turf Championship over 10 furlongs on turf at Santa Anita, plus placings in the Gr1 Arlington Million Stakes & twice in the Gr2 American Invitational Handicap) from 19 starts for US$673,825 earnings.
