Distorted Humor , sire of champion Funny Cide and the 2004 earners of $4.3 million, will stand in 2005 for $60,000 at Bill Casner and Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky. The fee for the son of Forty Niner out of the Danzig mare Danzig's Beauty is up from $50,000.

WinStar also announced that the fees for champions Victory Gallop (Cryptoclearance--Victorious Lil, by Vice Regent) and Tiznow  (Cee's Tizzy--Cee's Song, by Seattle Song) remain at $30,000. Victory Gallop heads the second-crop sire list by 2004 progeny earnings, with $2.3 million. Tiznow's first foals are yearlings.

WinStar has not yet released the fee for newcomer Speightstown, who won the Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I).
