Adena Springs Stallions Bred Impressive Books in 2016

Several Adena Springs stallions ranked highly in the annual Blood-Horse MarketWatch review of book quality.

Silver Max stood his first season at Adena Springs North in 2016 and his initial book showed a Class Performance Index (CPI) of 4.18. CPI measures racing class of the mares bred and Silver Max's figure was by far the best among all Canadian stallions and ranked second only to Triple Crown here American Pharoah among all North American first year stallions:

The consistently brilliant Ghostzapper bred the best 2016 book of any stallion in his fee range by two measures. His CPI shows as 5.73 and his Comparable Index (CI), which measures mare production quality, is 3.46. Both figures were tops among stallions standing in the $50,000-$99,999 range in 2016. These figures are better than stallions like Uncle Mo, Malibu Moon and Candy Ride:

Point of Entry and Fort Larned enjoyed continued support from breeders in 2016. Point of Entry's CI of 1.99 was tops among all Third Year stallions, while Fort Larned's CI of 1.54 ranks ahead of fellow Grade 1 winners Violence, Graydar and champion Shanghai Bobby:

Updated October 11, 2016 

Point Of Entry is the late, great Dynaformer’s most accomplished son at stud and hails from an illustrious Phipps-cultivated female family. His first four dams, going back to Champion sprinter Gold Beauty, are all Grade 1 winners and/or Grade 1 producers. Point Of Entry is out of the Seeking the Gold mare Matlacha Pass, also the dam of MG1W Pine Island.

Dynaformer sired at least eight stakes winners and two Grade 1 winners from mares carrying Storm Cat within five generations. Seeking the Gold also clicked with Storm Cat as there are at least 37 stakes winners that show Seeking the Gold on the top half of the pedigree and Storm Cat on the bottom half. Point Of Entry’s half-sister, Chili Cat (SP) produced Cat’s Claw (by Dynaformer) confirming the compatibility of the Storm Cat influence with his immediate family. Two of the first nine six-figure yearlings by Point of Entry are out of mares carrying Storm Cat.

Daughters and granddaughters of Giant’s Causeway (by Storm Cat out of a Rahy mare) are especially interesting for Point of Entry and he has a $130,000 September yearling on the cross. Dynaformer combined with Blushing Groom/Rahy to produce at least eight stakes winners including G1 winners Barbaro and Americain. Giant’s Causeway’s second dam is by Roberto and there are now at least 28 stakes winners inbred to Roberto through Giant’s Causeway. seven of them out of Giant’s Causeway mares.

Mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer are worth considering for Point of Entry. There are over 315 stakes winners that show Roberto on the top side of the pedigree and Danzig on the bottom. Dynaformer has sired at least nine of those, five group/graded, including G1W Karlovy Vary. Daughters of the U.S.-based Danzig sons War Front, Hard Spun and Langfuhr hold particular appeal as mates for Point Of Entry, as do mares from the prolific European Danzig lines including Danehill and Green Desert. Two of the first nine six-figure yearlings by Point of Entry are out of mares showing Danzig.

Point of Entry’s highest-priced first crop yearling is out of a mare by the Relaunch grandson Bertrando. Dynaformer showed a strong affinity for In Reality, particularly through Relaunch, the broodmare sire of G1W Starrer and G3W Pommes Frites as well as the second damsire of G1W Star Billing. The Valid Appeal branch of the In Reality line has also produced a high degree of quality when crossed with Roberto-line stallions, producing G1W Collect the Cash (by Dynafomer) and Breeders’ Cup Champion Perfect Sting (Red Ransom).

Daughters of Ghostzapper (dam by Relaunch) are particularly promising for Point of Entry given Ghostzapper’s considerable success with mares descending from Roberto (G1W’s Contested and Stately Victor, etc.) and Seeking The Gold (G1W Better Lucky, etc.). There are over 50 stakes winners on the broader Roberto/Deputy Minister cross, including Dynaformer’s G1W Brilliant Speed. Mares by Ghostzapper’s sire Awesome Again (dam by Blushing Groom) are similarly intriguing as mates for Point Of Entry.

There are over 175 stakes winners that show Seeking the Gold on the top half of the pedigree and a return of Mr. Prospector on the bottom. Mares carrying Mr. Prospector’s son, Carson City (out of a Blushing Groom mare and also the damsire of Barbaro), or his son City Zip (a half-brother to Ghostzapper), are particularly interesting for Point of Entry. Point of Entry is the sire of a $140,000 first crop yearling out of a Carson City daughter.
