Point of Entry retired to Adena Springs

Grade 1 winner Point of Entry has been retired to Adena Springs, which bought an interest in the Dynaformer horse earlier this year.

Multiple Grade 1 winner Point of Entry has been retired from racing and, as was announced earlier this year, will stand the 2014 breeding season at Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs Kentucky in Paris, Ky.

The 5-year-old son of Dynaformer made his final start in the Breeders’ Cup Turf last weekend, finishing fourth. That marked a successful return for Point of Entry and recovery from a condylar fracture in his left hind cannon bone suffered last June while winning the Grade 1 Manhattan Handicap.

Point of Entry, a Phipps Stable homebred, retires with nine wins in 18 starts for earnings of $2,494,490, highlighted by five Grade 1 victories.

Stronach bought into Point of Entry in January. Per the agreement, Stronach maintained a half-interest in the horse with the Phippses during the remainder of his racing career, and will take over a majority share while the horse stands at stud.

Point of Entry is out of the winning Seeking the Gold mare Matlacha Pass, whose five winners from seven foals to race also include multiple Grade 1 winner Pine Island and stakes-placed winner Chili Cat. He is from the family of highly successful third dam Maplejinsky, a sister to English Horse of the Year Dayjur and the Grade 1-winning base of a family tree that includes champions Sky Beauty, Grade 1 winners Violence, Tale of Ekati and Pleasant Home, Grade 2 winners Country Hideaway and Boca Grande, and Grade/Group 3 winners Vacation, Birdie Birdie and Hurricane Cat.
