Sharp Humor (April 21, 2003 – March 2015) was a Thoroughbred race horse .


Sharp Humor is co-owned by the Purdedel Stable, trained by Dale Romans, and ridden by Mark Guidry. Sharp Humor was bred in New York by Patrica S. Purdy. Just before the running of the Kentucky Derby of 2006, WinStar Farm in Versailles, Kentucky, (where his sire, Distorted Humor stands), acquired a share in him.


Sharp Humor is the son of Distorted Humor out of the mare Bellona. His sire is a son of Forty Niner who is in turn a son of the very influential Mr. Prospector.
