Einstein relocates to Adena Springs Canada


Grade 1 winner and young sire Einstein will be moved to Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs Canada in Aurora, Ontario, for the 2015 breeding season, at a fee to be determined.

The 12-year-old son of 1985 Horse of the Year Spend a Buck previously stood at Adena Springs Kentucky in Paris, Ky., where he resided since entering stud in 2010. His fee for the recently-completed breeding season was $7,500.

Einstein has sired two crops of racing age, and his eight winners through July 30 are led by Grade 3-placed Rankhasprivileges and multiple stakes-placed E Equalsmcsquared.

"Einstein is an ideal fit for Ontario," Stronach said. "He was a very versatile runner, and it makes perfect sense to stand him in Canada to take advantage of one of the premier synthetic racing programs in North America. We will continue our support of Einstein, and we already have several Ontario-bred foals by him to race here.  His progeny should excel in Ontario's rich racing program."

Einstein won 11 of 30 starts during his on-track career for earnings of $2,945,238. He won seven graded stakes: the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap, Gulfstream Park Turf Stakes, Gulfstream Park Breeders’ Cup Stakes, and two editions of the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic Stakes; as well as the Grade 2 Mervin H. Muniz Jr. Memorial Handicap and the Clark Handicap. He also placed in eight graded stakes.

Bred in Brazil by Fazenda Mondesir, Einstein is out of the multiple Brazilian Group 1 winning Ghadeer mare Gay Charm, whose three winners from nine foals to race also include Brazilian Group 3-placed Veracite.
