Ken Wilkins On Point of Entry

Adena Springs stallion sales manager Ken Wilkins discusses Point of Entry, a Grade 1...

Adena Springs stallion sales manager Ken Wilkins discusses Point of Entry, a Grade 1 winner who got Group 2 U.A.E. Derby winner Plus Que Parfait into last year's Kentucky Derby starting gate from his second crop.



1) What is Point of Entry's strongest selling point as a stallion? 

Wilkins: Quality and class. He just oozes class and he's passing that along to his runners as the number-one sire of Grade 1 horses in his crop.

2) If I've got a mare that needs help from the stallion on a physical characteristic, what can Point of Entry best contribute to the equation?

Wilkins: Size, bone, and hip.

3) Point of Entry has proven able to get high-level runners on both turf and dirt. Given his success largely came on the turf when he was racing himself, what do you attribute to his versatility at stud? 

Wilkins: He's out of a Seeking the Gold mare and he has a deep Phipps female family behind him that's loaded with top-class dirt runners. His half-sister Pine Island was a multiple Grade 1 winner on dirt. People also forget he broke his maiden by 15 1/2 lengths on the dirt at Belmont.

4) What can a breeder expect from a Point of Entry foal as a weanling? As a yearling?

Wilkins: Good size, balanced with plenty of bone.

5) Point of Entry is the #1 sire in his crop by “A Runner Index.” Can you explain what that means?

Wilkins: This gives breeders a way to measure the quality and class of his runners. APEX ratings are based on how many of a sire's runners are among the top eight percent in earnings over a year in a given jurisdiction.

6) Point of Entry didn't win his first stakes race until he was four years old – and he comes from a Phipps-line family that has traditionally rewarded patience – but he's had several runners do well in graded stakes company at two and three. In a “win now” marketplace, how important has it been for him to get those early runners?

Wilkins: Very, I think. in this marketplace it's important for breeders to know a stallion can get you any kind of runner.

7) What's something about Point of Entry that you think goes overlooked?

Wilkins: Just how good a racehorse he was. Five Grade 1s, and he was very unlucky to not have won the Breeders' Cup Turf twice. Just go back and see how he toyed with those fields.

8) Point of Entry stands for $15,000. What makes him a standout in that price range? 

Wilkins: Compare what he did on the track and now what his progeny are performing with other turf sires.

9) What else should someone considering Point of Entry know before making the call? 

Wilkins: Point of Entry continues to have a wide base of support from both outside breeders and from the Adena broodmare band. Last year, he bred a better book by CPI than Munnings, Constitution, Kantharos, etc.

Progeny Photo Gallery Mating Recommendations

Updated December 28, 2019 

Point Of Entry is the best sire son of the great Dynaformer currently at stud. He’s out of the Seeking the Gold mare Matlacha Pass and hails from a highly influential female line going back to champion Gold Beauty. 

Point of Entry’s MGSW/MG1SP Analyze It is out of a mare by Consolidator, a Storm Cat son out of a Blushing Groom granddaughter. 2019 multiple SP La Dame Blanche is out of a mare by Giant's Causeway, another bred Storm Cat over Blushing Groom (Rahy). We find Blushing Groom in the pedigrees of seven other Point of Entry blackytpe runners, including SW Glamanation, G2W Plus Que Parfait & G1SP Pretty Point.

Glamanation is out of a mare by the Blushing Groom grandson Orientate (by Mt. Livermore) while the 3rd dam of MGSP Admission Office is a Blushing Groom daughter. 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, dam by Blushing Groom) and Melbourne Cup hero Americain (dam by Arazi). 

Analyze It, Glamanation and three more Point of Entry blacktype runners 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). Royal Academy is the damsire of MGSP Admission Office. Mares by the Storm Cat great-grandson Shanghai Bobby (dam by Orientate) are very interesting for Point of Entry based on this evidence.

Another current source of Mt. Livermore is the A. P. Indy grandson Dialed In, whose dam is bred Storm Cat over Mt. Livermore. We also find A. P. Indy in the pedigree of Analyze It, sire of his 3rd dam.

From his first four starters out of daughters of Awesome Again (dam by Blushing Groom) Point of Entry has sired U. A. E. Derby (G2) hero Plus Que Parfait and two additional blacktype runners. Daughters of the Awesome Again son Ghostzapper should also go well with Point of Entry, especially given his considerable success as a sire with Roberto/Dynaformer and Seeking the Gold. Ghostzapper’s G1W Contested is out of a mare bred Roberto over Seeking the Gold and he’s had other top level success individually with both Dynaformer (G1W Stately Victor, etc.) and Seeking The Gold (G1W Better Lucky, etc.). 

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. Point of Entry's 2019 SP 2YO Malibu Mambo is out of a mare by the Relaunch grandson Tiznow (by Cee's Tizzy). This evidence furthers the case for daughters of Ghostzapper (dam by Relaunch).

Point of Entry’s 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 480 global SWs 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 stallion Elusive Quality and SW/G1SP My Gal Betty is out of a daughter of the Mr. Prospector son Mining. There are over 280 SWs 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 and two other Point of Entry blacktype runners.

Analyze It’s 2nd dam is by the Fappiano grandson Unbridled's Song. Seeking the Gold and Fappiano have combined in about one-fifth of the aforementioned 280 or so 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 two other blackytpe runners by Point of Entry.
