Drosselmeyer, who had finished fourth in the Grade 2 Risen Star, third in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby and second in the Grade 2 Dwyer, is now 3-3-2 from eight starts.

Kept out of the Kentucky Derby for lack of earnings, he has now bankrolled $801,170 with the winner’s purse of $600,000. ~ jenny kellner belmont stakes/nyra.com
