A Distorted Humor half-sister to recent GI Preakness S. third Creative Cause (Giant's Causeway) brought a bid of $310,000 from bloodstock agent Steve Young at Tuesday's second session of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale. She became the auction's second-highest-priced filly--behind the $450,000 Teuflesberg full-sister to Trinniberg who sold earlier in the day--and the third-highest-priced horse overall. Debbie Easter was the immediate underbidder.
Kings Equine, who sold the current sale-topping $575,000 Scat Daddy--Magical Mist on Monday, offered the Distorted Humor filly as hip 417. Kings Equine's Raul Reyes purchased the filly for $75,000 last year at Keeneland September. That was after Creative Cause's win in the GII Best Pal S. but before his first Grade I tally in the GI Norfolk S. Both horses were produced by the 13-year-old GISW Dream of Summer (Siberian Summer).
