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
Post 1 in BREEDERS' CUP DISTAFF

by Ghostzapper - Coral Sun by A. P. Indy
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
Post 8 in BREEDERS' CUP DIRT MILE
by Awesome Again - Tiz O'Gold by Cee's Tizzy
Breeder: Calumet Farm
Owner: Calumet Farm
Trainer: D. Wayne Lukas
Awesome Again's latest millionaire is also his latest iron horse. The sophomore colt won the Risen Star S. (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.

Awesome Slew
Post 5 in BREEDERS' CUP DIRT MILE
by Awesome Again - Slewfoundmoney by Seeking the Gold
Breeder: Live Oak Stud
Owner: Live Oak Plantation
Trainer: Mark Casse
One of Awesome Again's 12 millionaires, Awesome Slew will try improve on his fine third in last year's Dirt Mile, run at Del Mar.

Updated December 7, 2018

Point Of Entry is by the great Roberto son Dynaformer out of the terrific Seeking the Gold mare Matlacha Pass. His first four dams, going back to champion sprinter Gold Beauty, are all Grade 1 winners and/or Grade 1 producers. 

The pedigree of MGSW/MG1SP Analyze It highlights many of the ancestors that are clicking with Point of Entry so far. Analyze It is out of a mare by Consolidator, who's by Storm Cat out of a Blushing Groom granddaughter. We also find Blushing Groom in the pedigrees of SW Glamanation, SP Admission Office & G2SP Plus Que Parfait. Glamanation is out of a mare by the Blushing Groom grandson Orientate (by Mt. Livermore) while the 3rd dam of Admission Office is a Blushing Groom daughter. Plus Que Pafair's damsire is Awesome Again, who is out of a daughter of Blushing Groom. Dynaformer certainly worked well with Blushing Groom-influenced mares with at least eight stakes winners including major G1 winners on two continents - Kentucky Derby champion Barbaro (out of a mare by Carson City whose dam is by Blushing Groom) and Melbourne Cup hero Americain (dam by Arazi). 

Analyze It, Glamanation and Admission Office, along with SP Doups Point, all show the influence of Crimson Satan, best known as Storm Cat’s 2nd damsire. Crimson Satan is also the damsire of both Mt. Livermore and Storm Cat's close relative, Royal Academy (by Nijinsky II), damsire of Admission Office. Mares by the Storm Cat great grandson Shanghai Bobby (dam by Orientate) are very interesting for Point of Entry as are daughters and granddaughters of Giant’s Causeway (by Storm Cat out of mare by the Blushing Groom son Rahy).

Another current source of Mt. Livermore is the A. P. Indy grandson Dialed In, who’s out of a daughter of Mt. Livermore. A. P. Indy is Analyze It’s 3rd damsire.

Point of Entry’s 2018 2-year-old SW Entirely is out of a mare by Danzig, who we also find in the pedigree of SP Devine Entry (2nd dam by the Danzig son Belong to Me). There are now well over 400 global stakes winners showing Roberto on the top half of the pedigree and Danzig on the bottom side.

Devine Entry is out of a mare by the Gone West (by Mr. Prospector) stallion Elusive Quality and 2018 2-year-old SW/G1SP My Gal Betty is out of a daughter of the Mr. Prospector son Mining. There are over 250 stakes winners that show Point of Entry’s damsire Seeking the Gold on the top half of the pedigree and a return of Mr. Prospector on the bottom. In fact, Mining is bred on the same Mr. Prospector/Buckpasser cross as Seeking the Gold. We also find a reinforcement of Buckpasser in the pedigree of SW Glamanation. 

The second dam of Analyze It is by the Fappiano grandson Unbridled's Song. Seeking the Gold and Fappiano have combined in about one-fifth of the aforementioned 250 Seeking the Gold/Mr. Prospector stakes winners.

Unbridled’s Song is out of a mare by Caro, an influence also found in the pedigrees of SW Entirely and SP Devine Entry.

Daughters of Ghostzapper are promising for Point of Entry given Ghostzapper’s considerable success as a sire with Roberto-line mares. Ghostzapper’s G1W Contested is out of a mare bred Roberto over Seeking the Gold and he’s had other top level success with Dynaformer (G1W Stately Victor, etc.) and Seeking The Gold (G1W Better Lucky, etc.). Mares by Ghostzapper’s sire Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister, dam by Blushing Groom) are similarly intriguing. As mentioned previously, Awesome Again is the damsire Plus Que Parfait, runner- up in the 2018 Kentucky Jockey Club (G2).

Dynaformer showed a strong affinity for In Reality, particularly through Relaunch, the broodmare sire of his G1W Starrer and G3W Pommes Frites and the second damsire of his G1W Star Billing. The Valid Appeal branch of the In Reality broodmare line has also produced a high degree of quality when crossed with Roberto-line stallions, namely G1W Collect the Cash (by Dynaformer) and Breeders’ Cup Champion Perfect Sting (by Red Ransom). This evidence furthers the case for daughters of Ghostzapper (dam by Relaunch).
