Dual classic winner Funny Cide retired
by Warren Alber
Sackatoga Stable’s Funny Cide, winner of the 2003 Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness Stakes (G1), has been retired.
The seven-year-old Distorted Humor gelding won the Wadsworth Memorial Handicap by three lengths on July 4 at Finger Lakes, snapping a six-race winless stretch, in what was to be his final race.
“We wanted him to go out a winner; there’s no better way for him to end his career,” said Jack Knowlton, Sackatoga Stable’s managing partner.
Trained by Barclay Tagg, Funny Cide won 11 of 38 career starts and earned $3,529,412.
