Big Drama



Hal Queen’s champion sprinter BIG DRAMA has returned to the farm where his career at stud began. The last Eclipse Award winner to retire to stud in the Sunshine State, BIG DRAMA is destined for a huge future as a stallion. Descending through BUCKPASSER’s male line through Chef-de-Race BUCKAROO, and his son four-time leading Florida Sire MONTBROOK, BIG DRAMA is poised to continue this important sire line that is a proven source of stamina in global pedigrees.

Back to where it all began, with a goal of returning to #1. We have reset his stud to “a steal at $7,500” for a limited time only. The one we believe will be the next great Florida stallion, from an outstanding Florida line, 1966 Horse of the Year Buckpasser.
