Southern Hemisphere seasons are once again available to all 21 stallions standing at Adena Springs Kentucky, Adena Springs North and Adena Springs South.

The Adena Springs Kentucky roster boasts five Breeders' Cup winners - 1998 Classic winner Awesome Again, his son 2004 Classic hero and Horse of the Year/Hall of Famer Ghostzapper, 2000 Juvenile victor Macho Uno, his son 2013 Classic champ Mucho Macho Man and 1996 Classic winner Alphabet Soup.

Standing alongside that quintet is the highly promising Point of Entry, the great Dynaformer's most accomplished son at stud. A five-time Grade 1 winner from an exceptional Phipps female line, Point of Entry's first foals arrived this past spring to rave reviews. 

The Kentucky roster is rounded out by Tiago, sire of 15% stakes winners from starters, including recent stakes winner Viva Majorca and Classic winner Touch Gold.

Nine stallions stand at Adena Springs North, including two-time champion sire Milwaukee Brew and Silent Name, the #1 son of the legendary Sunday Silence standing outside of Japan. Silent Name is Canada's #1 sire by AEI and is a former leading first crop sire in Brazil.

Adena Springs North also features the top sons of Sadler's Wells (Grade 1 winner  Sligo Bay) and Danehill (Epsom Derby winner North Light) standing in North America. Sligo Bay is the sire of reigning Canadian Horse of the Year Lexie Lou. 

Rookie Sensation just completed his first season at Adena Springs North. The exciting newcomer is a flashy Grade 2 winner by Unbridled's Song from the family of A. P. Indy.

Also standing at Adena Springs North: Giant Gizmo, Canada's #1-ranked young stallion, five-time Grade 1 winner Einstein, El Prado's unbeaten son Singing Saint and Awesome Again's Breeders' Cup-winning son Wilko, the leading Canadian sire of graded winners over the past 12 months.

The Adena Springs South roster is headlined by 2012 Breeders' Cup Classic winner Fort Larned, a grandson of the great Mr. Prospector and the leading money earner in Florida. His first foals are garnering high praise from breeders.

Fort Larned isn't the only Grade 1 winner at Adena South. Capo Bastone captured the sire-making King's Bishop Stakes (G1), a race won by the likes of More Than Ready, Hard Spun, Tale of the Cat and two leading first crop stallions.

Rounding out the Adena Springs South lineup are two other exciting young prospects, Ghostzapper's champion son Hunters Bay and the Giant's Causeway son City Wolf, a graded stakes-winning half brother to City Zip and Ghostzapper

Silent Name's Fanticola Soars in G2 Royal Heroine S.

Forget the nose loss to Queen of The Sand in the Grade 2 Santa Barbara Handicap on April 18, or......

Forget the nose loss to Queen of The Sand in the Grade 2 Santa Barbara Handicap on April 18, or the neck loss to Hard Not to Like in the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes on May 25.

Fanticola put those tough defeats into the past when she won the first graded stakes of her career in Saturday’s $201,000 Royal Heroine Stakes at Santa Anita. The win ended months of frustration for trainer Phil D’Amato and owners Tony Fanticola and Joe Scardino.

“No more seconds,” D’Amato said as he left the winner’s circle following the Grade 2 race for fillies and mares. “This is vindication for the last two. She’s improving.”

Ridden by Joe Talamo, Fanticola was always near the front, stalking pacesetter Birdlover, the 3-1 second choice. Fanticola took the lead in the final furlong and was pressed to the wire, finishing a neck in front of 2-1 favorite Queen of The Sand.

“She settled great off the other filly and ran a great race,” Talamo said.

Fanticola ran a mile on turf in 1:36.76. She was never farther than a half-length behind Birdlover, who set fractions of 23.44 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 48 seconds for a half-mile. Queen of The Sand closed from seventh with a determined run to just miss.

Fanticola, a 5-year-old mare by the Sunday Silence stallion Silent Name, has won 5 of 17 starts and earned $468,300. She has now won or placed in eight stakes events, all in Southern California.

Another Silent Name five-year-old, the multiple stakes winner Silent Treat, pushed her career earnings over $350,000 on Saturday with a sharp runner-up finish in the $100,000 Zadracarta Stakes at Woodbine.
