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.

Shaman Ghost, who will have first foals in 2019, accumulated a record of 8-3-2 from 17 lifetime starts, amassing earnings of $3,859,311. He won or placed in seven stakes, including victories in the Woodward S. (G1), Santa Anita Handicap (G1), Brooklyn Invitational S. (G1) and the Pimlico Special (G1). At three, he won the prestigious Queens Plate and was named Champion 3-Year-Old in Canada. He was also second to Champion Arrogate in the $12,000,000 Pegasus Cup (G1).

The full 2019 roster of Adena Springs Kentucky stallions with stands and nurses fees is as follows:

$575,000 2YO Fortin Hill is Mucho Macho Man's Latest 'Rising Star'

OXO Equine’s $575,000 OBS March purchase Fortin Hill, a son of Breeders Cup Classic champ Mucho......

OXO Equine’s $575,000 OBS March purchase Fortin Hill, a son of Breeders Cup Classic champ Mucho Macho Man, justified his 6-5 favoritism with an impressive debut victory at Belmont Park, becoming the newest ‘TDN Rising Star'.

Watch Fortin Hill's debut victory

Breaking on top from the outside post in this six-horse affair, the bay was overtaken by the rail-drawn Starting Point and pressed from second through an opening quarter in :22.91. Drawing even with the pacesetter on the far turn, the Indiana-bred effortlessly sailed clear in the lane under a hand ride from Irad Ortiz, Jr. to win as he pleased by 5 1/2 lengths. He completed the six-panel test in a sharp 1:09.56. Family Biz finished second and it was another 5 1/4 lengths back to the third-place finisher.

A short yearling at Keeneland January, Fortin Hill sold for $170,000 at Keeneland September and commanded $575,000 at OBS March after breezing in a swift :20 4/5. The winner hails from the family of two-time Canadian Horse of the Year and Eclipse winner Chief Bearhart and MGISW Private Zone a star by Mucho Macho Man's sire Macho Uno

Fortin Hill was bred Robert L. Losey and is Mucho Macho Man's second 'TDN Rising Star' after Mucho Gusto, who rolled to a big Maiden Special win for Bob Baffert on September 20. Mucho Gusto was also a big seller last spring, hammering down for $625,000.

Mucho Macho Man has also been represented by a pair of early blacktype runners in Mucho Unusual, runner-up in the Generous Portion Stakes at Del Mar and Belle Laura, a fast-closing third in the Grade 2 Jessamine Stakes at Keeneland on October 10.
