Drosselmeyer to Stand at WinStar Farm

Drosselmeyer, ridden by jockey Mike Smith and trained by Bill Mott takes the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky on November 5, 2011
Plans for recent Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) champion Drosselmeyer were finalized on Nov. 18, and the 4-year-old son of Distorted Humor has been officially retired to stud and will stand his first season in 2012 at WinStar Farm in Versailles, Ky. His fee will be $17,500 stands and nurses.

“Drosselmeyer came out of the Classic so good that it gave us cause for pause,” said Elliott Walden, president & CEO of WinStar. “We knew he had what it took to be one of the top older horses in the country, and I think we saw that with how he came to hand in his last two starts. So it made for a difficult decision.

“We took some time to think about all of our options, and we came to the conclusion that it was best for both Drosselmeyer and WinStar Farm to retire him and go out as a Breeders' Cup Classic champion.”
