 Retirement is a dirty word to Harold Queen. The 75-year-old Florida resident said he works “seven days a week” and doesn’t plan to stop “until I’m dead.”

While many men his age in the Sunshine State are fishing or playing golf, Queen keeps busy managing his nearly 82-acre farm that is part of the Nelson Jones training complex near Ocala. He has 10 broodmares, boards horses for clients, rehabs injured runners, and breaks 20-25 racing prospects each year.

Queen also is the proud breeder and owner of Big Drama, 2010’s champion male sprinter. An earner of more than $2.6 million as of early February, the son of Montbrook is trained by David Fawkes and has won nine added-money events, including last year’s Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I). In his 2011 debut
the 5-year-old dark bay or brown horse captured the Jan. 15 Mr. Prospector Stakes (gr. III) by four lengths at Gulfstream Park.
