The upset victory by Drosselmeyer over Game on Dude in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) was voted the 2011 National Thoroughbred Racing Association Moment of the Year.
Drosselmeyer’s victory represented the second classic win in as many days for trainer Bill Mott, who saddled Royal Delta to win the previous day’s Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic (gr. I). The connections of Drosselmeyer will be honored at the Eclipse Award ceremony Monday, Jan. 16, in Beverly Hills, Calif., with the "NTRA Moment of the Year" award.
The 2011 winner marks the third straight year that the Breeders’ Cup Classic has accounted for the NTRA Moment of the Year.
