The inbreeding of Distorted Humor and Northern dancer, evident in this mating, has produced some of Distorted Humor's best offspring including: Flower Alley ~ Travers Gr1 and Jim Dandy Gr2 (Saratoga), Commentator ~ Whitney Gr1 (Saratoga), Sensibly Chic ~ Vagrancy Gr2 (Belmont), Hysterical Lady, Gaudeamus, Da Stoops, and Upturn.
