Adena Springs Juveniles Gallop for Fasig-Tipton Florida Sale

Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs was well-represented at Monday’s breeze show as the Florida sale makes its debut at The Stronach Group’s Gulfstream Park. Of the 175 horses in the catalogue, a full 45 are consigned by Adena Springs. The entire draft galloped Monday, see below for video links.

"We’ve been more commercial the last couple of years and, obviously, this looks like a great venue and coming back to the home team," said Adena’s Jack Brothers. "Fasig-Tipton is a great niche in this market and this is a place where we think we belong." 

Of the decision to forego breezing the juveniles Monday, Brothers said, "It’s been Frank’s philosophy from the beginning not to push the 2-year-olds along. Truthfully, at the end of the day, our horses will get to the races at the same rate as these others. [Buyers] can go on with them and have full disclosure with our vet reports--everything is at the barn. These are horses that people can pluck out of the sale and just march on with. They have a great foundation on all of them." 

Brothers said he received plenty of positive responses to the gallops. 

"The reception has been excellent," he said. "We had a lot of favorable comments and a lot of feedback between the breaks letting us know how pleased they were with the condition of the horses and the way they presented themselves."

Brothers added that Adena’s horses generally tend to be later-developing athletes. 

"I think our horses tend to be end-user horses," he said. "Most of them have Classic pedigrees. I think that is part of our program and our stallion roster kind of suggests later-developing horses."

Big-Time Macho Uno Juveniles at Barretts Sale

The progeny of Macho Uno proved extremely popular at the 2015 Barretts Two-Year-Old in Training......

The progeny of Macho Uno proved extremely popular at the 2015 Barretts Two-Year-Old in Training sale. Colts by the Eclipse Award champion brought $310,000 and $260,000, respectively, ranking as two of the three highest-priced colts at the storied auction.

Hip # 52 was scooped up by the prolific North American racing stable Conquest Stables LLC for $310,000. The dark bay or brown colt is out of the stakes-placed Anabaa mare Life (Fr) and was a successful pinhook for his consignor, Bruno DeBerdt (Excel Bloodstock). DeBerdt purchased the colt at last year's Barretts October sale for $80,000.

"From the day I bought him he went forward," DeBerdt told Bloodhorse.com after the sale. "And I'm really pleased that he's going to Mark Casse. I think we're going to see a lot more of him."

Hip #77 (pictured) was another profitable pinhook. Purchased for $100,000 by Blake-Albina Thoroughbred Services at 2014 Fasig-Tipton July sale, the colt was hammered down for $260,000 to Narvick International Inc. He's out of the Storm Cat mare Encore, a daughter of Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) heroine Cash Run. He worked the co-fastest 1/8th at Friday's preview show, zipping home in :9 3/4. The colt is scheduled to race in Japan where Macho Uno's son Danon Legend, a 2012 Barretts 2YO sale grad, is a graded stakes winner.
