Bred: Whisper Hill Farm (Ky.)
Sire: Distorted Humor
Dam: Capote's Crown, by Capote
Kristo took three starts to break his maiden but when he did, he did it impressively with a 6 3/4 length win. The colt nearly kept up with the highly touted Midnight Hawk in the Sham Stakes, finishing second by 1 3/4 lengths in his Kentucky Derby trail debut.
Kristo is out of the stakes winning Capote's Crown, who is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Smoke Glacken and Smokey Glacken. He was a $500,000 purchase at the 2012 Keeneland September yearling sale.
