Adena Springs Kentucky has set its 2019 stallion roster and fees, headlined by Ghostzapper who will remain at a fee of $85,000 S&N for the upcoming breeding season. The roster is also highlighted by the arrival of multiple Grade 1 winner Shaman Ghost, a champion son of Ghostzapper, who is relocating from California to Kentucky. Shaman Ghost will stand for $7,500 S&N.
“We are extremely pleased to have brought Shaman Ghost home from California to Adena Springs Kentucky,” said Ben Walden. “He bred a strong book out there with Terry Lovingier and Mr. Stronach is eager to support him here.
“We've had unprecedented early-season requests in his sire, Ghostzapper,” Walden added, “which bodes well for his upcoming breeding season.”
A perennial top stallion, Ghostzapper is the sire of 11 Grade 1 winners, eight millionaires and five champions. He is represented this year by 11 stakes winners and five Graded stakes winners, including Grade 2 winner and Grade 1-placed Proctor's Ledge and multiple Grade 2 winner and Canadian Champion Holy Helena. Ghostzapper is also the damsire of this year's Triple Crown winner Justify, Eclipse Champion Drefong and Grade 1 winner American Gal.
