Game On Dude looked to be headed for a wire-to-wire win at the Breeders Cup Classic, pulling away from the field and holding off challenges as they neared the finish line. But out of nowhere, Drosselmeyer surged from the back, flying down the outside as the Breeders Cup field headed for home under the lights. It was as if Game On Dude never saw his challenger.
Dosselmeyer's move was so late, yet worked to perfection as he cruised past the pack and into the lead. And just before the wire, he pulled away, passing Game On Dude and hanging on for the win.
Here's video of Drosselmeyer's run to victory in the $5 million Breeders Cup Classic. Notice where he starts as they enter the home stretch and, of course, where he finishes. Not a bad run at all.
