Distorted Humor’s most accomplished son
The highest rated horse in the world on dirt for 2011, Drosselmeyer entered stud in 2012 off a decisive victory in North America's biggest championship event – the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1).
American Classic winner at three and now the leading money winner of all-time by Champion Sire Distorted Humor, his accomplishments include:
- America’s Leading Money Winner of 2011
- Highest rated horse in the world on dirt in 2011 by World Thoroughbred Rankings
- Joins A.P. Indy as the only Belmont/Breeders’ Cup Classic winners
- Multiple Grade 1 winner of $3,728,170
- On the board in seven stakes, six Graded
- Six-length debut winner at a mile at Churchill at two
- $600,000 sales yearling, out of Grade 1 winner Golden Ballet
- First weanlings include individuals for $185,000, $155,000, $130,000, $100,000, etc.
Drosselmeyer further added his name to an elite roster of just seven horses to win a Triple Crown race and the Classic, a group which includes Unbridled and Sunday Silence. Drosselmeyer covered 132 mares his first year at stud, and 119 mares in 2013. His first weanlings are averaging $63,167, some 3 1/2 times the bred-on fee.
