Sprint Champion Big Drama Retired

Big Drama, winner of the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Sprint and reigning Eclipse Award champion sprinter, has been retired, trainer David Fawkes said Sunday morning at Churchill Downs.


Big Drama ended his career on Saturday finishing seventh in defense of his title in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.  Big Drama, a 5-year-old homebred son of Montbrook owned by Harold Queen, led throughout to capture last year’s  Sprint by 1 1/2 lengths under jockey Eibar Coa.


Big Drama, who retires with a record of 11 wins in 19 starts and earnings of $2,746,060, made only three starts in 2011. Aside from his performance in the Sprint, he also set a six-furlong track record winning Gulfstream Park’s Grade 3 Mr. Prospector in January and captured Calder’s Whippleton Stakes on Sept. 4.
