Drill earned blacktype every year from two to five but got all of his wins in his first two seasons. He was best from seven to eight and a half furlongs, and this son of the top-class Lawyer Ron represents the Danzig sire line.
His top-level win came in the seven-furlong Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity, in which he came late and wide to beat Creative Cause by a length on polytrack. That subsequently classic-placed colt reversed the placings when they met again the Grade 1 Norfolk Stakes three weeks later but was again behind when Drill won the Grade 2 San Vincente Stakes four and a half months after that.
He stands at Get Away Farm in Florida, covered 79 mares in his first season and 57 in his second.
Drill is the best of several winners out of Cat Dancer (by Storm Cat), a winning full-sister to Grade 1-placed Grade 2 Monmouth Oaks heroine Magic Storm, a filly who went on to produce Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup star Lachesis (by Deep Impact) and this year's Grade 1 Yasuda Kinen scorer Satono Aladdin (by Deep Impact) in Japan.
His third dam, Water Dance (by Nijinsky), was a Grade 2-placed stakes winner and half-sister to champion and dual classic star Little Current (by Sea Bird II). Her half-sister Prayers'N Promises (by Foolish Pleasure) was the Grade 1-winning dam of high-class European sprinter Nabeel Dancer (by Northern Dancer), and the variety of other stakes winners who descend from her siblings include the Group 3 Coventry Stakes scorer Cutting Blade (by Sharpo).
Luiana (by My Babu), the fourth dam of Drill, was a half-sister to Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes hero Chateaugay (by Swaps) and also to Primonetta (by Swaps), the champion and 17-time winner whose offspring feature the Grade 1 stars Cum Laude Laurie (by Hail To Reason) and Prince Thou Art (by Hail To Reason).
