Adena Springs' nine-horse stallion roster is led by Ghostzapper, who finished 2017 as the eighth general leading sire in North America.

A homebred son of Adena Kentucky stallion Awesome Again, Ghostzapper enjoyed considerable success in 2017 with 15 black-type winners, eight graded winners, and two grade 1 winners, and his progeny earnings exceeded $10.3 million. His 2018 fee will be $85,000, increased from $75,000 last year.

Adena Kentucky first-crop sires Point of Entry and Fort Larned were both represented by their first stakes winners in 2017, with Fort Larned's daughter Blonde Bomber earning a placing in the 14 Hands Winery Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1). 

First-crop yearlings by Mucho Macho Man, a millionaire and grade 1-winning son of Adena stallion Macho Uno, were well received at the sales. Mucho Macho Man ranked among the top first-crop sires at the Keeneland September sale by median and by average. 

The 2018 breeding season may also see the addition of multiple grade 1 winner and Canadian champion Shaman Ghost. The son of Ghostzapper is still in training. His fee will be announced upon retirement.

A Three Stakes Winner Saturday for Ghostzapper

Ghostly Presence out-sprinted a field of Ontario-bred fillies in the $125,000 Jammed Lovely to......

The Ghostzapper filly Ghostly Presence out-sprinted a field of Ontario-bred fillies in the $125,000 Jammed Lovely to emerge a sophomore stakes winner on Saturday afternoon at Woodbine Racetrack. 

Watch the Jammed Lovely Stakes

The progeny of Ghostzapper were just warming up though. Within the hour Runaway Ghost lived up to his name in the Golden Nugget Stakes at Golden Gate Fields while later in the evening in West Virginia, North Atlantic scored a big victory in the A Huevo Stakes. When the dust settled Ghostzapper's 2017 ledger showed 15 blacktype winners, a figure surpassed only by Tapit, War Front and Into Mischief among active North American stallions.

Ghostly Presence won by one and three-quarter lengths in 1:23.98 giving Hall of Fame trainer Roger Attfield his second consecutive victory in the Jammed Lovely Stakes and fifth overall.

Owned by her breeder Chiefswood Stable, the filly out of the Distorted Humor mare Five N Forty was victorious in last year's Princess Elizabeth Stakes. She entered the Jammed Lovely Stakes off a runner-up finishes in the La Lorgnette Stakes and the Carotene Stakes. Ghostly Presence has now bankrolled $312,204.

"I loved her going into this race today," Attfield said. "Her last two races were great races, she just was very unlucky. But she’s a sweetheart, she really is.”

In the Golden Nugget, Runaway Ghost was sent off favored in his stakes debut. He gave the bettors no anxious moments, sprinting out to the lead when the gate opened and rolling down the lane. His final margin of victory: 7 1/2 lengths.

“I was very impressed with his professionalism. I had a lot of horse there,” commented winning rider Aaron Gryder.

The colt races for his breeder Joe Peacock and is trained by Mike Machowsky. He's the second promising juvenile stakes winner for his sire after the unbeaten Dak Attack, winner of the Ellis Park Juvenile in August.

The four-year-old North Atlantic has been knocking on the blacktype door for three seasons and broke through with handy score Saturday night. The Coleswood Farm homebred had placed in three previous blacktype events, including a nose defeat to Charitable Donation in the $350,000 West Virginia Breeders' Classic on October 14. He turned the tables on that rival with a measured one-length victory in the A Huevo.
