David Fawkes-trained Big Drama with jockey Eibar Coa led in the first quarter and didn't let up in the $2 millionBreeders' Cup Sprint (GI).
"He broke sharp and we got the lead and kept going, said Coa. "He did everything on his own to the stretch. When the rest started coming to me, he just pushed harder and one."
Big Drama paid $12.40, $7.00 and $5.00. Hamazing Destiny returned $19.80 and $12.20, and Smileing Tiger paid $5.00 to show.
