Adena Springs Stallions Well-Represented on Breeders' Cup Weekend

Adena Springs Kentucky boasts five Breeders' Cup Champions on their impressive roster, including...

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:

Belle Laura
Post 8 in BREEDERS' CUP JUVENILE FILLIES TURF
by Mucho Macho Man -Belle Chaussee, by Giant's Causeway
Breeder: Reeves Thoroughbred Racing
Owner: GU Racing Stable, LLC
Trainer: Norman Casse
Belle Laura, a filly from Mucho Macho Man's first crop, will be his first Breeders' Cup starter. She broke her Maiden over the Churchill Downs turf course and was a fast-closing 3rd in her stakes debut, the October 10 Jessamine S. (G2) at Keeneland.

Analyze It
Post 12 in BREEDERS' CUP MILE
by Point of Entry - Sweet Assay, by Consolidator
Breeder: P. Headley Bell, Nancy Bell & NATO
Owner: William H. Lawrence
Trainer: Chad Brown
A colt from Point of Entry's first crop, Analyze It has been remarkably consistent with three wins and three seconds in his seven career starts. He's a multiple Graded Stakes winner and narrowly missed the winner's circle in both the Belmont Derby (G1) and Secretariat S. (G1).

My Gal Betty
Post 13 in BREEDERS' CUP JUVENILE FILLIES TURF
by Point of Entry - Gal of Mine, by Mining
Breeder: Hidden Brook Farm
Owner: William K. Werner
Trainer: Roger Attfield
This lovely filly is among Point of Entry's 12 2018 second crop juvenile winners. She was an impressive winner of the Catch A Glimpse S. at Woodbine in late August and enters the Juvenile Fillies Turf off a strong runner-up performance in the Natalma S. (G1) over that same course.

Kirby's Penny
Post 4 in BREEDERS' CUP FILLY & MARE SPRINT
by Macho Uno - Spirit Seeker by Peace Rules
Breeder: Hidden Springs Farm
Owner: Kent Spellman
Trainer: Wesley Ward
Kirby's Penny was a smart winner of the Vagrancy H. (G3) at Belmont Park last spring. She's trained by the brilliant Wesley Ward, who guided the Adena Springs-bred Ghostzapper miss Judy the Beauty to victory in the 2014 edition of the Filly & Mare Sprint.

Champagne Problems

Breeder: Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings LLC
Owner: Six Column Stables, LLC, R. Bloch, J. Seiler, F. Merritt & D. Hall
Trainer: Ian Wilkes
Champagne Problems found her best stride over the summer. After an impressive Allowance victory at Churchill Downs in late June she captured the Groupie Doll S. (G3). She's since finished a close second to Blue Prize in both the Locust Grove S. (G3) under the Twin Spires and the Spinster S. (G1) at Keeneland. She can become Ghostzapper's 11th Grade 1 winner and second Breeders' Cup champion with a victory.

Varenka
Post 9 in BREEDERS' CUP JUVENILE FILLIES TURF
by Ghostzapper - Dynamic Cat by Dynaformer
Breeder: George Strawbridge
Owner: Augustin Stable
Trainer: Graham Motion
The well-bred Varenka enters the Juvenile Fillies Turf off a fantastic second to likely race favorite Newspaperofrecord in Belmont Park's Miss Grillo S. (G2). She is a full sister to Lift Up, a Stakes winner of nearly $200,000.

Bravazo

(G2) before competing in all three Triple Crown races, finishing a close second to Justify in the Preakness S. (G1). He kept right on going throughout the summer, placing in the Haskell Inv. (G1) and Travers S. (G1). Sold in-foal by Adena Springs at the 2014 Keeneland November sale, Bravazo can become Awesome Again's fifth Breeders' Cup Champion with a victory in the Dirt Mile.

Updated October 10, 2018 

Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man is by champion 2-year-old Macho Uno out of a mare by the Two Punch stallion Ponche. Like his sire, he promises to be effective with a wide array of modern pedigree influences.

A good number of Mucho Macho Man’s early winners are out of Storm Cat-line mares. Two of them, including $625,000 2-year-old & ‘TDN Rising Star’ Mucho Gusto, and SP Belle Laura, are out of mares by Storm Cat’s best sire son Giant’s Causeway

Macho Uno’s successes with Storm Cat includes GSW/millionaire Danon Legend and SW Revenant One out of a Storm Cat daughters, SW Hy Riverside (2nd dam by the Storm Cat son Hennessy) and SW Done Deal is out of a mare by Tale of the Cat.

Mucho Macho Man’s SP Mucho Unusual is out of a mare by another Northern Dancer-line stallion Unusual Heat, a son of Nureyev.

Mucho Macho Man’s dam is out of a mare by Nijinsky II, a close relative of Storm Cat’s sire Storm Bird. Reinforcing the Nijinsky II influence may prove beneficial as he’s found in the pedigrees of 12 Macho Uno stakes horses including G2W Overheard. The Fappiano grandson Broken Vow (by Unbridled) is out of a mare by Nijinsky II, who’s also found in the pedigree of the dams of Malibu Moon, Tapit and Rubiano (by Fappiano), damsire of War Front.

Danzig is another promising Northern Dancer-line influence. From a small group of starters out of mares by the Forty Niner son Distorted Humor (dam by Danzig), Macho Uno has sired a pair of stakes horses including SW Hy Riverside. Macho Uno has sired the additional graded stakes winners Wicked Style (G1W) and Potesta (G2W) out of mares showing Danzig. 

Mucho Macho Man’s dam has produced two good ones by Tapit - SW Southern Girl and $2 million yearling/GSP Marconi - making his daughters and granddaughters intriguing. Seattle Slew-influenced mares are promising overall as SP Mucho Unusual’s 2nd dam is by the Slew son General Meeting. Macho Uno has also had good success with mares showing Seattle Slew (12 stakes horses).

Mares from showing the Fappiano influence hold high promise for Mucho Macho Man. Fappiano’s damsire, Dr. Fager, is a half-brother to Ta Wee, dam of Mucho Macho Man’s great grandsire Great Above. Reinforcing their dam, Aspidistra, in the pedigree has been successful over the past few decades in American pedigrees and for Macho Uno in particular. We see this pattern in Macho Uno's Classic winner Harlem Rocker, G2W Mucho Mas Macho and SW/Sovereign Award finalist Decision Day (dam by Unbridled's Song), etc.

The Macho Uno/Wild Again cross has yielded G1W Macho Again and G3W Silsita and one of Mucho Macho Man’s early six-figure yearlings is out of a mare by the Wild Again son Vicar.

Given that Macho Uno is a half-brother to Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister) it would be prudent to consider Vice Regent/Deputy Minister-line mares. Vice Regent appears in a total of 15 stakes horses by Macho Uno, including G1W winner Private Zone and MG3W/G1SP Tommy Macho.

Mucho Macho Man hails from the same extended female line as Dynaformer and pedigree expert Avalyn Hunter suggested in a Bloodhorse.com post that: “Given that both Mr. Prospector and Blushing Groom have worked very well with Roberto, daughters and granddaughters of Dynaformer, may be an angle worth considering with Mucho Macho Man.”
