Horsehat.com Fast Fact: Funny Cide has now won three $1 million dollar races, the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Jockey Club Gold Cup.

Small owners from upstate New York aren’t supposed to win the Kentucky Derby. Geldings aren’t supposed to win the Kentucky Derby either. And horses born and raised in New York certainly are not supposed to win America’s most prized race. That helps explain the huge fan following that Funny Cide now has. In May of 2003 he became only the third gelding and very first New York-bred to win the Kentucky Derby. And he did so for a group of small-time owners from Sag Harbor New York, who shuttled to Churchill Downs on a rented yellow school bus. Funny Cide validated his Derby win with an emphatic triumph in the Preakness two weeks later.

In 2004 Funny Cide is back again winning important races. After third-place runs in the G1 Donn Handicap and G2 New Orleans Handicap, he defeated G1-winner Evening Attire in the G3 Excelsior in the spring at Aqueduct. Over the summer the son of Distorted Humor placed in the G1 Suburban, G2 MassCap and G2 Saratoga BC Handicap. In the G1 Jockey Club on October 2, Funny Cide sprang back into the big time. He rallied relentlessly down the lane to defeat Newfoundland and The Cliff’s Edge, leaving four other grades stakes winners in his wake.
