Stronach Stables-owned and Adena Springs-bred Queen's Plate winner Shaman Ghost is being inducted to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Aug. 8 at the Mississauga Convention Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
In celebration, Stronach Stables is donating a 2019 breeding season of the newly minted Hall of Fame member to be auctioned at the Hall of Fame Gala, along with stallion seasons for seven horses standing at Adena Springs North.
A son of Ghostzapper, Shaman Ghost was named Canada's champion three-year-old male in 2015 following wins in the Queen's Plate and Grade 3 Marine Stakes. His 2016 campaign established Shaman Ghost as one of the best on the continent, winning the G1 Woodward Stakes at Saratoga, and G2 Brooklyn Invitational at Belmont.
His career earnings soared to $3.8 million with wins in 2017 including the G1 Santa Anita Handicap and the G3 Pimlico Special. He finished second to Arrogate in the world's richest race, the $12 million G1 Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream.
Shaman Ghost will stand at Adena Springs Kentucky for the 2019 breeding season.
Darryl Kaplan, President of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame, acknowledged the generous contribution with the following statement, “We are greatly appreciative of the generosity of Adena Springs and the Stronach family. The Hall relies on the support of the Canadian racing community, and to have such an important industry partner step up in this way, is so valuable. This donation is a real boost to Wednesday's gala event, and will surely be of great interest to the many people attending.”
