2018 Kentucky Stud Fees Announced

11.16.2017 -

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.
