Drosselmeyer

Breeders' Cup, KTDF

Distorted Humor’s most accomplished son

The highest rated horse in the world on dirt for 2011, Drosselmeyer retired to stud off a decisive victory in North America's biggest championship event – the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1).

American Classic winner at three and the leading money winner of all-time by Champion Sire Distorted Humor, his first yearlings are now lighting up the sales rings. His accomplishments include:  

  • Multiple Grade 1 winner of $3,728,170
  • 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
  • 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             
  • Sire of a $300,000 Saratoga Select colt 

Drosselmeyer further added his name to an elite roster of just seven horses to win the Breeders' Cup Classic and a Triple Crown race, an honor roll which includes A.P. Indy, Unbridled, and Sunday Silence.

Drosselmeyer covered 132 mares his first year at stud, and 119 mares his second. His first weanlings averaged $62,240, with individuals for $185,000, $155,000, $130,000, $100,000. His first yearlings are averaging $123,000, with buyers including Alex and JoAnn Lieblong, Maverick Racing, and Raut.
