On a weekend that was virtually devoid of Triple Crown-prep stakes
events, the horse that drew most attention as a classic prospect was Drosselmeyer
who’d been on the radar as a bright prospect since winning a Churchill
Downs maiden by six lengths in November. Returning nearly 11 weeks
later for a nine-furlong Gulfstream Park allowance, Drosselmeyer
handled the step up in class and distance with aplomb, drawing away
late for a 1 3/4-lengths victory.
