The first reported offspring by Belmont Stakes (gr. I) and Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Drosselmeyer is a chestnut colt foaled Jan. 8 at Craig and Holly Bandoroff's Denali Stud near Paris, Ky.
Bred by Galatyn Stables, the colt is the second foal out of the winning Hennessy mare Heather's Angel, whose dam, stakes-placed Taghkanic, is a half sister to grade II winner Private Emblem and the stakes-winning dam of grade II winner Gantry.
"He's a nice colt, very classy looking," said Gary Bush, Denali farm manager. "He has above average size, good leg, and covers a lot of ground. There's a lot to like at this stage."
Drosselmeyer (Distorted Humor —Golden Ballet, by Moscow Ballet) stands at Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky. His 2013 fee is $17,500 stands and nurses.
