Big Drama romps Sunday at Calder in his prep for the Vosburgh.

MIAMI - Trainer David Fawkes reported that sprint champion Big Drama came out of his victory in Sunday’s Whippleton Handicap in good order and remains a go for the Grade 1 Vosburgh on Oct. 8 at Belmont Park.

“I’m real happy with his race, he’s doing excellent, and all the ducks are in order to run in the Vosburgh,” said Fawkes, who’ll continue to train Big Drama at Calder before shipping him to Belmont the week of the race. 
Fawkes also reported that his multiple graded stakes winner Duke of Mischief is done for the year. Duke of Mischief, who finished 10th in the Grade 1 Whitney, is suffering from a pulled muscle in his back, according to Fawkes, and is on Harold Queen’s farm in Ocala, Fla. where he’ll lay up until the 2011-2012 Gulfstream meet.
