So, the DrawItem event is used to draw the items that appear in the dropdown list and not the actual selected value. The colour of the selected text is set by ForeColor. It seems to me that the simple solution would be to change the ForeColor, depending on whether the selection was enabled or not. Something like this:
C#
private void comboBox_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
  bool enableItem = (SelectedIndex < 0) ? false : comboBox.Items[SelectedIndex]).enabled;
  comboBox.ForeColor = enableItem ? Color.Black : Color.Gray;
}
