Distorted Humor Adds US Gr2

Tuesday, 26th August 2008

Former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a US graded-stakes success when Gr1-winning 5YO mare Hystericalady (Distorted Humor-Sacramentada, by Northair) notched her 3rd consecutive Gr2 win (& 4th graded-stakes win of the year) with an emphatic 8-lengths victory in the US$270,000 Gr2 Molly Pitcher Breeders' Cup Handicap (8.5 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Monmouth Park. Favourite Hystericalady (ridden by Robby Albarado for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer) defeated fellow 5YO mare Rolling Sea (Sefapiano-Almost Sma, by Cure The Blues) & 6YO mare Lexi Star (Crypto Star-Frozen Lock, by Corridor Key). Last year Hystericalady won this same race by 6.25-lengths. At her previous 2 starts this season she won both July's Gr2 Delaware Handicap (10 furlongs) at Delaware Park & June's Gr2 Fleur De Lis Handicap (9 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Churchill Downs, after earlier this year also winning March's Gr3 Azeri Stakes (8.5 furlongs) at Oaklawn Park & finishing 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 Kentucky-bred Hystericalady now has 11 wins from 21 starts for US$2,290,556 earnings.
