VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - Drosselmeyer, winner of the Grade I
Breeders' Cup Classic and Belmont Stakes, has been retired to stand
at stud in Kentucky.
The 4-year-old son of Distorted Humor out of Golden Ballet will
stand at WinStar Farm in Versailles for a $17,500 fee.
Drosselmeyer won $3.7 million in his career, making him
Distorted Humor's top earner. WinStar purchased him as a yearling
WinStar President and CEO Elliott Walden says Drosselmeyer came
out of the Nov. 5 Classic in such good shape that it was hard to
decide whether to retire him. He says it was ultimately determined
to let the horse go out as a Classic champion.
