DROPPED is the talented MORPHETVILLE METRO WINNING galloper by HIDDEN DRAGON out of the SIR TRISTRAM mare SWINBURN, half to Group Winner LE ZAGALETTA who won 14 races from 65 starts and 1.3 million in prizemoney.


His run in the HILL SMITH STAKES over 1800 last prep was full of merit finishing close up behind the winner BELUGA BLUE who followed up with a good 2nd in the Wakeful Stakes at Flemington behind PIERRO'S half sister AMBIENCE.

Due to his quality run in the HILL SMITH he was prepared for the GROUP 1 S.A. DERBY using the LISTED Port Adelaide GUINEAS over 1800m and the GROUP 3 CHAIRMAN STAKES over 2020m as his lead up races. The TOP LINER Howard Be Thy Name won all three races. Dropped performed admirably in all runs. He over raced in the Derby with the slow tempo at the rear and finished in a line with 2nd favourite Tarquin, Sacred Eye and Royal Rumble.

DROPPED has proven himself to be a quality galloper who has consistently raced well against top class opposition and has gained enormous benefit from the experience.

There is no doubt that he will be suited to the shorter distances next preparation as his pedigree suggests. DROPPED will return Bigger, Stronger and ready to earn plenty.

Will suit racing anywhere.
