Drosselmeyer Invited to Sword Dancer

Drosselmeyer captures the 2010 Belmont Stakes

Drosselmeyer, winner of the 2010 Belmont Stakes, breezed five furlongs in 1:02.44 over the Oklahoma turf course this morning. The 4-year-old colt, owned by WinStar Farm, is one of the invitees for the Grade 1 Sword Dancer for older turf horses on August 13.

 

Drosselmeyer has not raced since June 10 when he finished second to stablemate Birdrun in the Grade 2 Brooklyn Handicap at Belmont . In two previous attempts on the grass as a 2-year old, Drosselmeyer finished second and third.

 

In addition to Drosselmeyer, the Sword Dancer is expected to attract Winchester, winner of a pair of Grade 1 races in New York last year, the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational and the Woodford Reserve Manhattan; this year’s Grade 1 United Nations winner Teaks North; as well as Mambo Meister, and Bim Bam from the initial invite list for the race.
