Big Drama

Big Drama (foaled 2006 in Ocala, Florida) is a dark bay thoroughbred racing colt out of leading sire Montbrook and dam Riveting Drama. He is trained by David Fawkes. Bred and owned by Mr. Harold Queen, Big Drama has earned over $1,267,250 to date. Big Drama most recently competed in the Grade 3 West Virginia Derby on August, 1, beaten by a head by Soul Warrior.

Big Drama's two year-old campaign included winning the Grade 3 Delta Jackpot and all three legs of the Florida Stallion Series, one of only six two-year-olds to do so in the twenty-seven year history of the series.[1]

Highlights of this, his three year-old year, include winning the Red Legend Stakes at Charles Town Races and Slots. He set the 7 furlong track record of 1:20.88 [2]in the Grade 2 Swale Stakes at Gulfstream, although he was disqualified from the win and placed second due to bumping This Ones for Phil. Big Drama finished fifth in the 2009 Preakness Stakes in at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland after bobbling at the start.
