Distorted Humor Adds Irish Gr3

Friday, 10th June 2011

In Ireland overnight, former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler (& runner-up on the US general sires list in 2005, 2009 & 2010) Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a group success when 3YO filly Radharcnafarraige (Distorted Humor-Extraterrestral, by Storm Bird) scored by a head against older rivals in the €57,500 (A$79,000) Gr3 Ballyogan Stakes (6 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Leopardstown. Radharcnafarraige (ridden by Kevin Manning for trainer Jim Bolger) defeated UK-bred fellow 3YO filly Peahen (Ishiguru-Ulysses Daughter, by College Chapel) & another 3YO filly Knock Stars (Soviet Star-Knockatotaun, by Spectrum). Radharcnafarraige now has 3 wins (also including 2010’s Irish Gr3 Fillies Sprint Stakes over 6 furlongs at Naas) & 2 placings from 9 starts.
