Drosselmeyer Eyes Dubai World Cup

WinStar Farm's 2010 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Drosselmeyer, who has been working strongly toward his 4-year-old debut, is being pointed to the $10 million Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) at Meydan March 26.

WinStar President Elliott Walden said Feb. 7 that plans call for Drosselmeyer to run in the $125,000 Mineshaft Handicap (gr. III) at the Fair Grounds Feb. 19 prior to going to Dubai.

“He’s doing great; he’s doing super. We’ll see what happens, but so far he’s doing everything right,” said Walden of the Distorted Humor   colt out of grade 1 winner Golden Ballet.

Drosselmeyer breezed five furlongs at Payson Park in Florida Feb. 6 for trainer Bill Mott, stopping the clock in 1.00.80, co-fastest time at the distance with the move turned in by leading Kentucky Derby Presented By Yum! Brands (gr. I) candidate To Honor and Serve.

his chances aren't bad.
He's not fast enough!
considering the caliber of horses finishing in the money last year,basically middle grade allowance,let him run as that's the only plae he'll be able to win a graded stakes race this year
Drosselmeyer's a decent enough colt. But all of his form lines have come over conventional dirt. Big difference between the dirt, and the tapeta at Meydan. Just don't think he's good enough. Too many coming with already proven tapeta form that's good enough to beat Drosselmeyer, IMO. Mike De Kock's two horses, Bold Silvano and Musir. Definitely Godolphin's Mendip and possibly Spring of Fame. Plus horses like Gio Ponti, Gitano Hernando, Richard's Kid, and I also expect a bigger run out of Twice Year this year as well. All of these horses are solid G1-G2 horses with proven synthetic or tapeta form. That will prove too much for Dosselmeyer to overcome. JMO.
