Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness Stakes (G1) winner Funny Cide will be the newest resident of the Kentucky Horse Park on December 5. Since his retirement as a race horse in 2007, the eight-year-old Distorted Humor gelding has worked as trainer Barclay Tagg’s stable pony. “The rigors of racing and training for several years have started to cause him mild discomfort recently as he continued working on a regular basis as my stable pony,” Tagg said. “So now the time has come, as he is turning nine years old, to really retire.”
Funny Cide will join another Kentucky Derby winner, Alysheba, who came to the park in October.
