Justenuffhumor , a Saratoga grade II winner, will stand at Vinery New York near Hudson, N.Y., beginning with the 2011 breeding season. His fee is $5,000 live foal, stands and nurses.
A 5-year-old by Distorted Humor , Justenuffhumor was one of the star turf runners at Saratoga in 2009 for Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley Stable. He won the Fourstardave Handicap (gr. IIT) and the Bernard Baruch Handicap (gr. IIT). Later in the year, he finished third in Goldikova’s TVG Breeders’ Cup Mile (gr. IT) at Oak Tree at Santa Anita Park.
“The New York breeding program is poised to become one of the most lucrative places in the country to raise a horse,” said Charlie Boden, head of sales for Darley. “We think Justenuffhumor will be well-received by New York breeders given his race record and world-class pedigree.”
Justenuffhumor was retired with six wins from a dozen starts and earnings of $533,900.
Mt. Brilliant Farm is the breeder of Kentucky-bred Justenuffhumor, who is out of the stakes-winning Broad Brush mare Justenuffheart and is a half brother to champion Dreaming of Anna and grade II winner Lewis Michael .
