Adena fees mostly remain steady


Frank Stronach's Adena Springs Farm will keep its stallions' fees largely the same in 2011, although Ghostzapper and Macho Uno will see their fees trimmed from 2010 levels.

Ghostzapper will drop from $30,000 to $20,000 and Macho Uno falls from $25,000 to $15,000.

Awesome Again, the far-flung operation's most expensive sire, will continue to stand in Kentucky for $50,000, the same fee he had in 2010.

Other stallions at Adena's Kentucky division and their 2011 fees are Einstein, $7,500; Giacomo, $5,000; Red Bullet, private; and new addition Plan, $5,000.

Adena Springs announced earlier this year that it would relocate a number of its Kentucky and Canadian sires to New York, where those horses will join the roster at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds. All of those will have the same fee they stood for in 2010 with Touch Gold at $10,000, Alphabet Soup at $6,000; and Tiago and Silent Name at $5,000. Harlem Rocker will also join that group in New York and will stand his first season for Adena at $3,500.

Olmodavor also has relocated and will stand at California's Magali Farms for $5,000.

Adena will stand the following horses at its Canadian division: Milwakuee Brew, $12,500; North Light, $10,000; Sligo Bay, $6,000; Showing Up, $5,000; Wilko, $5,000; and Giant Gizmo, $4,000. All remain at their 2010 fees. New to the Canada roster is Mast Track, who begins his career there at $2,500.

Adena also will offer breeding incentives, including a potential 20-percent discount for fees paid by Nov. 1. Adena also will offer a discount to breeders who pay the full advertised fee on an Adena stallion in their local market and then breed to another Adena sire in a different market; those breeders can receive a 20-percent discount on the second fee.
