Imagine the thrill of throwing a leg over a legendary racehorse stallion’s back and going for a hack!
WinStar Farm of Versailles, Kentucky is home to some of the best stallions in the Thoroughbred racing world, including Tiznow, Pioneerof the Nile, Speightstown and Distorted Humor — just to name a very few. Not only is it home to the best, but the farm also holds one of the highest standards of care in the industry: when not in the active breeding season, WinStar’s stallions are ridden daily for physical and mental exercise.
Distorted Humor goes for his daily hack around WinStar in this video. While he might still think he’s off to the races, his exercise rider does a good job of keeping this big boy focused while staying out of his way.
Distorted Humor is the sire of such winners as Funny Cide, Drosselmeyer, Any Given Saturday, Flower Alley and Hystericalady. He’s also starting to leave his legacy as a broodmare sire, with broodmare offspring including Practical Joke, New Money Honey and of course the incomparable Arrogate.
Distorted Humor stands at WinStar for $80,000.
