Distorted Humor Adds US Gr2

Tuesday, 15th July 2008

In the US, former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a graded-stakes success when Gr1-winning 5YO mare Hystericalady (Distorted Humor-Sacramentada, by Northair) notched her 2nd consecutive Gr2 win (& 3rd graded-stakes win of the year) with a 4-lengths victory in the US$1 million Gr2 Delaware Handicap (10 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Delaware Park. Hystericalady (ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer) defeated front-running Lemon Drop Mom (Lemon Drop Kid-Return Of Mom, by Deputy Minister) & favoured 5YO mare Unbridled Belle (Broken Vow-Little Bold Belle, by Silver Buck) who won this race last year. At her previous start Hystericalady blitzed her rivals by 7.5-lengths in last month's US Gr2 Fleur De Lis Handicap (9 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Churchill Downs; & previously this season Hystericalady also won March's Gr3 Azeri Stakes (8.5 furlongs) at Oaklawn Park & finished 3rd in May's Gr1 Humana Distaff Handicap (7 furlongs) at Churchill Downs. During 2007 Kentucky-bred Hysterical Lady (a US$125,000 yearling at the 2004 Keeneland September sale whose dam Sacramentada was champion Chilean older mare) won both the Gr1 Humana Distaff (7 furlongs) at Churchill Downs & Gr2 Molly Pitcher Breeders' Cup Handicap (8.5 furlongs) at Monmouth Park, as well as placing in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Distaff (9 furlongs) at Monmouth Park, Gr1 Lady's Secret Breeders' Cup Handicap (8.5 furlongs) at Santa Anita, Gr1 Vanity Handicap (9 furlongs) at Hollywood Park & Gr2 Miladay Breeders' Cup Handicap at Hollywood Park. Her other victories include both the 2006 Gr2 Hollywood Breeders' Cup Oaks (8.5 furlongs) at Hollywood Park & 2005 Juan Gonzalez Memorial Stakes at Pleasanton. Overall Hystericalady now has 10 wins from 20 starts for US$2,110,556 earnings.
