Adena Springs Stallions Well-Represented on Breeders' Cup Weekend

10.29.2018 -

Adena Springs Kentucky boasts five Breeders' Cup Champions on their impressive roster, including four Breeders' Cup Classic winners. It's therefore no surprise to see a wealth of 2018 Breeders' Cup starters by the Adena stallions, including contenders by the promising young sires Point of Entry and Mucho Macho Man, hero of the 2012 Classic.

Here are the 2018 Breeders' Cup contenders by the Adena Spring stallions:
