Adena Springs; Daughters of Point of Entry & Ghostzapper Nominated for 2018 Sovereign Awards

The Jockey Club of Canada has announced the finalists for the 2018 Sovereign Awards honoring...

The Jockey Club of Canada has announced the finalists for the 2018 Sovereign Awards honoring Canada's champions and recognizing their outstanding achievements.

Adena Springs was nominated for a 13th Sovereign Award for Outstanding Breeder. Among the 2018 Adena Springs-bred Stakes winners in Canada were the Silent Name 3-year-olds Zestina, a two-time Stakes winner at Woodbine and Silent Poet, winner of the Vice Regent Stakes. Adena Springs has been awarded the Outstanding Breeder trophy in each of the last three seasons.

My Gal Betty was among Point of Entry's 14 juveniles winners in 2018 and she's a finalist in the 2-Year-Old Female category. Racing for William K. Werner, My Gal Betty was triumphant in the $100,000 Catch a Glimpse Stakes, over a field that included fellow finalist Bold Script. She then earned a berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) with a strong runner-up finish in the Natalama Stakes (G1).

My Gal Betty was bred in Kentucky by Hidden Brook Farm and is trained by Hall of Famer Roger Attfield.

The Ivan Dalos homebred Ghostzapper mare Gamble's Ghost is a finalist for Older Female after a campaign that saw her win a trio of Stakes including the Trillium Stakes (G3) and the Ontario Matron (G3). It's the second Older Female nomination for Gamble's Ghost and her fourth overall. She was a finalist for 2-Year-Old Female in 2015 and for 3-Year-Old Female the following year.

The winners of the 12 horse categories and five human categories will be announced at the 44th Annual Sovereign Awards Ceremony  Thursday, April 18, at Chateau Le Jardin in Woodbridge, Ontario. Finalists for Canada's Horse of the Year Award are announced during the ceremony.

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. 2019 multiple SP La Dame Blanche is out of a mare by Giant's Causeway, another who's bred Storm Cat over Blushing Groom (Rahy). 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 Pafait's damsire is Awesome Again (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 three more SP runners 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 based on this evidence.

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 two other SP runners.

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).
