Stronach Stables’ Sovereign Award champion Hunters Bay will stand his first season at Adena Springs North in 2017.
The son of Ghostzapper was a multiple graded winner of over $600,000 and his runner-up effort to Wise Dan in the 2012 Woodbine Mile (G1) helped secure honors as Champion Older Male in Canada.
Prior to his Grade 1 effort on the grass, Hunters Bay reeled off a pair of impressive graded wins over Woodbine's all-weather course. He rolled by three lengths in the Eclipse Stakes (G3) and was similarly impressive in his Dominion Day score over fellow champion Pender Harbour and Grade 1 winner Stately Victor.
Hunters Bay has proven popular with breeders in his first three seasons at stud and his first yearlings have sold for up to 10 times their stud fee.
A stud fee will be announced in the coming weeks.
