Ken Wilkins will be returning to the team at Adena Springs Kentucky, effective immediately.
“We are very pleased that Ken, who has vast knowledge and experience in the stallion marketplace, will be part of our Kentucky operation,” said Donald Wells, farm manager and member of the Adena team for the past 12 years. “We look forward to having Ken help build upon the strong foundation we have here at Adena Springs as we look towards the future with great optimism.”
Wilkins brings to Adena Springs experience gained by working with some of the leading stallion operations in the U.S.
“I have always had great respect for the Stronach family and the team at Adena Springs,” Wilkins said. “Their accomplishments are among the strongest in the industry.”
The stallion roster at Adena Springs is a great mix of both proven and very promising young horses. Mucho Macho Man is off to a fantastic start with his first crop now being represented by a potential Derby horse with Mucho Gusto, winner of the recent Grade 3 Bob Hope Stakes at Del Mar. Point of Entry is establishing himself as an important sire with many quality runners this year in his second crop. In addition, perennial top sire Ghostzapper continues to expand his influence as the sire of Adena Springs stallion Shaman Ghost, who is being introduced to Kentucky this year. Ghostzapper has also emerged as an important dam sire, as seen with this year's Triple Crown winner Justify.
