Adena Springs Renews For 2010; Adds Einstein

Free TrueNicks for the 21 stallions standing under the Adena Springs banner will once again be available for the 2010 breeding season.

This group includes the very interesting Einstein (BRZ) (TrueNicks,SRO) who was purchased by Stronach Racing prior to the Pacific Classic (gr. I). If not for an impossible trip in the Stephen Foster H. (gr I), Einstein would be the first runner with grade I scores on dirt, synthetic and grass surfaces in the same year. He took the Santa Anita H. (gr. I) and the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (gr. I) (for the second time) earlier this year. Tiago (TrueNicks,SRO) is another active runner expected to join the Adena Springs roster next year. He is a grade I winner and a half brother to a Kentucky Derby winner.

Einstein and Tiago join a roster that includes El Prado (IRE) (TrueNicks,SRO) , the leading sire in North America in 2002 (and the sire of 19 stakes horses in 2009, including group I winner Spanish Moon) and Awesome Again (TrueNicks,SRO), the sire of 9 grade I winners and four Breeders' Cup winners, including Horse of the Year Ghostzapper (TrueNicks,SRO) .

Macho Uno (TrueNicks,SRO) is heading into the same league with the likes of grade I winner and top older male Macho Again, grade I winner Wicked Style and Canadian Classic winner Harlem Rocker among the runners in his first three crops. Touch Gold (TrueNicks,SRO) is another Adena Kentucky veteran with grade I credentials. He's sired four grade I winners in his career and a little known fact is his lifetime yearling and juvenile averages are both north of $100,000. Congaree (TrueNicks,SRO) was among the leading first crop sires of stakes winners last year and Mythical Power, runaway winner of the Lone Star Derby (gr. III), is among his graded winners this year. Epsom Derby (gr. I) winner North Light (IRE) (TrueNicks,SRO) has some promising debut winners so far from his first crop of juveniles. The aforementioned Ghostzapper also has his first runners on the track this year and his very first winner was a stakes winner. Next year we'll see the first runners from 2005 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Giacomo (TrueNicks,SRO) who, like Macho Uno, is a son of Holy Bull (TrueNicks,SRO) .

The on-the-rise Milwaukee Brew (TrueNicks,SRO) headlines the stallions at Adena Springs South. He is the #2 ranked sire in Florida this year (with his oldest runners only 4yo's) and he has a couple of runners approaching the $1 million mark in career earnings. Also standing at Adena South are Breeders' Cup Classic winner (gr. I) Alphabet Soup (TrueNicks,SRO), the #2 sire in Florida last year, Ghostzapper's winning full brother Aristocrat (TrueNicks,SRO), Mr. Prospector's brilliant son Greatness (TrueNicks,SRO) , Olmodavor (TrueNicks,SRO) , a top five first crop Florida sire in '08,  Preakness Stakes (gr. I) winner Red Bullet (TrueNicks,SRO) , the sire of three stakes winners since July 19, grade I winner Showing Up (TrueNicks,SRO) and 2004 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) winner Wilko (TrueNicks,SRO) .

Indy King (TrueNicks,SRO) (Indiana Stallion Station) also stand under the Adena banner as do Sligo Bay (IRE) (TrueNicks,SRO) (Ire) and the Sunday Silence son Silent Name (JPN) (TrueNicks,SRO) who both stand at Gardiner Farm in Canada. Silent Name's first crop are weanlings this year while Sligo Bay is the sire of the recent graded stakes winning juvenile Bay to Bay.
