Drosselmeyer (foaled April 1, 2007 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning the third leg of the 2010 U.S. Triple Crown series. Sired by multiple stakes winner Distorted Humor, his dam was Golden Ballet, a multiple Grade 1 winner and a California Champion 3-Year-Old Filly. Damsire Moscow Ballet was a son of the 1971 English Triple Crown champion Nijinsky. Drosselmeyer was named for a character from The Nutcracker ballet.
Drosselmeyer was purchased at the 2008 Keeneland September Yearling Sale for $600,000 by WinStar Farm LLC of Versailles, Kentucky who entrusted his race conditioning to Hall of Fame trainer, Bill Mott.
Drosselmeyer raced four times at age two, earning his first win on November 18 in his final start of 2009. In important stakes races for three-year-olds leading up to the 2010 Kentucky Derby, the colt ran third in the Louisiana Derby but his earnings from that combined with those from his other three starts, he did not have sufficient total earnings to qualify for the Derby.
On May 8, Drosselmeyer finished second in the Dwyer Stakes, six lengths behind winner, Fly Down.  That performance saw him sent off at odds of 13-1 in the third leg of the U.S. Triple Crown series, the Belmont Stakes. Ridden by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, Drosselmeyer won the race, giving jockey Smith his first win in the Belmont and for trainer Mott, his first ever Triple Crown race win.
