Big Drama headed to Charles Town


Big Drama, who finished fifth after setting the pace in the Preakness, will make his next start in the $250,000 Red Legend Stakes at Charles Town on June 20, trainer David Fawkes confirmed on Monday. .

Big Drama had his first workout since the Preakness on Sunday morning at Monmouth Park, where he went five furlongs in 1:00.40. Channing Hill was aboard for the work, but Fawkes said Eibar Coa would be reunited with Big Drama for the seven-furlong Red Legend. Coa took off Big Drama to guide Musket Man to a third-place finish in the Preakness.

"He worked great," said Fawkes. "He went off in 25 and change and finished very strong."
