 SI.com - Horse Racing - Funny Cide, a gelding, still feels the love - Wednesday June 04, 2003 05:18 PM
After a horse is gelded, he tends to become more focused on training, less interested in fillies, and his racing career lasts longer because he's easier to handle.
Geldings, though, were banned from the Belmont from 1919-1956, mainly because owners did not want to see their colts' value as a stallion diminished with a loss to a horse who was unable to reproduce.
The decision to geld Funny Cide was made easier because his future as a stallion was questionable due to pedigree: his sire Distorted Humor is unproven and his mare, Belle's Good Cide, won two of 26 starts and died in March of colic.

 HORSE RACING / Gelding a colt brings several advantages
When Funny Cide won one for the geldings in the Kentucky Derby, it ended a 73-year losing streak that was as misleading as it was well-publicized.
No gelding had won the Derby since Clyde Van Dusen in 1929, but only 74 had tried until Funny Cide and Buddy Gil (who finished sixth) ran in the 129th edition on May 3 -- an average of one per year in fields of up to 20 horses.
But while geldings are the distinct minority in America's top races -- none has won a Breeders' Cup Classic, although they have won nine other Cup events - - they form a large majority elsewhere in the sport.
