Hunters Bay relocated to Pleasant Acres Stallions in Florida


Canadian champion Hunters Bay has relocated to Joseph and Helen Barbazon’s Pleasant Acres Stallions in Morriston, Fla., where he will stand the 2015 breeding season for an advertised fee of $5,000.

The 7-year-old son of Ghostzapper previously stood at Heritage Stallions in Maryland, where he made his debut at stud in 2014. He will remain property of Adena Springs at his new location.

Hunters Bay won six of 14 career starts over four seasons of racing for earnings of $611,091. He was named Canada’s champion older male in 2012 with a campaign that included wins in the Grade 3 Dominion Day Stakes and Eclipse Stakes, as well as a runner-up finish in the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile.

Homebred in Kentucky by Adena Springs, Hunters Bay is out of the Grade 2-winning Smoke Glacken mare Smok’n Frolic, whose four winners from five foals to race also includes Japanese Group 3-placed stakes winner Wild Flapper. He is from the family of Grade 2 winner Frolic’s Dream, and Grade 3 winners Fabulous Frolic and Lindsay Frolic.
