... went to high school together. He was purchased for only $22,000 as a yearling (unheard of low price in these circles). Funny Cide went on to win the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in 2003 and over 3 million dollars. The group of owners were referred to as "ordinary horsemen that took over the sport of kings'. We had a great time here!
