Drosselmeyer Will Retire After BC Classic

Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Drosselmeyer will retire to stud after making a final start in the Nov. 5 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) at Churchill Downs.

The 4-year-old son of Distorted Humor   is set to stand in 2012 at Keane Stud near Amenia, N.Y. as a WinStar/Keane Stud venture. Drosselmeyer is in the process of being syndicated by Thomas Clark Bloodstock, with a limited release of shares to be sold before the chestnut colt starts in the Breeders' Cup.

“Starting a young stallion prospect like Drosselmeyer in the New York market shows how serious WinStar is about our commitment to that state's emerging breeding program,” said WinStar president and CEO Elliott Walden in a release. “Being by our champion sire Distorted Humor, we had the opportunity to follow his growth from when he was at Taylor Made as a foal. He's always been a superstar and we had to have him, which is why we purchased him for $600,000 as a yearling from Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Jones.”

Drosselmeyer has to be one of the slowest horses to ever win a grade 1. His only chance to come in the money in the BCC is if they reduce the field to three. As slow as he is he's one of the nicest looking horses I've ever seen.
Another horse retiring to stud waaayyy too early. As, much as I like Drosselmeyer I think he needs to be run more.
