Funny Cide

Trainer:   Barclay Tagg
Jockey:   Julie Krone
Foaling Date:   4-20-2000
Pedigree:   Distorted Humor - Belle's Good Cide by Slewacide
2003 Record:   8 starts 2-2-2
2003 Grade One Wins:   Kentucky Derby (Churchill Downs), Preakness (Pimlico)
Note:   Only won two races all year, but those were the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. He was denied the Triple Crown by Empire Maker when he finished third in the Belmont and finished a distant second in the Haskell in his comeback. Didn't race again until the Breeders' Cup Classic where he finished a dismal 9th, only beating Volponi. Sure he deserves serious consideration for 3-year-old honors, but not really a serious Horse of the Year candidate in my opinion.
