WinStar tees up three BC runners
Saturday, April 02, 2011
A trio of WinStar Farm owned and bred starters will shoot for the stars on Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs in  28th renewal of the Breeders' Cup championships. Drosselmeyer will contest the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1), with Sidney's Candy going in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Mile (G1), and Speightscity in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1)

Bill Mott trained Drosselmeyer, winner of the 2010 Belmont S., came up with one of his best effort in his career last month in the Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1), rallying strongly in the stretch despite a slow early pace to be second. That effort made the son of Distorted Humor racing's latest millionaire, with $1,028,170.

Bred in Kentucky by Aaron and Marie Jones, Drosselmeyer was a $600,000 Keeneland September yearling sale purchase in 2008. He is a half-brother to Affectionately H. winner Stage Luck and is out of the multiple Grade 1 winning mare Golden Ballet.

With his front-running style and adaptability to any surface, Sidney's Candy always draws plenty of attention. The 4-year-old chestnut has graded stakes wins on the turf (Grade 2 Fourstardave S.), dirt (Grade 3 Sir Beaufort S.) and synthetic surfaces (Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby). He was beaten just three lengths in last year's Breeders' Cup Mile, also ran at Churchill Downs.

WinStar bought Sidney's Candy earlier this summer from her breeder Jenny Craig. Like Drosselmeyer, Sidney's Candy eclipsed the $1 million earnings mark this year when he won the Fourstardave S.

WinStar is co-breeder, along with Polo Green Stable, Piacentino Farms, and Shannon Potter, of Speightscity, who is by WinStar stallion Speightstown. Speightscity earned his way into the Juvenile with a devastating 11 1/2-length maiden win at nine furlongs on Sept. 2 at Saratoga.

Speightscity is out of the three-time stakes-placed mare My American Girl, also the dam of stakes winner My Royal Girl.
