Adena Springs Announces 2014 Stud Fees
Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs Farm announced today the 2014 stud fees for their Kentucky stallion roster.
Five-time Grade 1 winner, Point Of Entry, a son of Dynaformer out of Matlacha Pass (Seeking The Gold), bred and raced by Phipps Stable, retires to Adena Springs at a $25,000 stud fee. He is joined by the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Fort Larned, a three-time Grade 1 winner bred and raced by the Whitham family, who will stand for a fee of $20,000.
Adena Springs’ signature stallion, Awesome Again, the sire of Oxbow, Game On Dude and Paynter among others in 2013 will remain at $75,000 for the 2014 season.
Ghostzapper, prominently ranked among the leading sires by Stakes winners, Graded Stakes winners and earnings each of the last two years will stand for $50,000, up from $40,000 in 2013.
Macho Uno, who counts the Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man among his six Graded winners in 2013 will stand for $30,000, up from $20,000 in 2013.
Promising freshman sires Einstein and Tiago will remain at $7,500 and $3,500, respectively. Returning to Adena Springs, Kentucky after three seasons at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in New York, are Alphabet Soup and Touch Gold who will both stand for $5,000.
“We are extremely excited about our 2014 Kentucky stallion roster”, said Adena Springs’ General Manager, Eric Hamelback. “To have four individual Breeders’ Cup Classic winners and the sire of this year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic winner all in the same stallion barn is an incredible achievement, and a tribute to Frank Stronach’s vision and philosophy. Our nine Kentucky-based stallions are all Grade 1-winning millionaires, and they come from a wide variety of bloodlines and will be available to breeders at every level of the market. The Stronachs’ mission is always to breed to race, and with Awesome Again, Ghostzapper and Macho Uno we will stand three of the current top 15 sires on the General Sires List.”
