Silent Name returning to Adena Springs in Canada


Adena Springs stallion Silent Name, who spent 2011 and 2012 at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in New York, will relocate to the Adena Springs Canadian division in Aurora, Ontario, the farm announced Tuesday.

His stud fee will be announced at a later date.

Silent Name began his career at Adena Springs Kentucky, then stood two seasons at Gardiner Farms in Ontario before moving to McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds. His leading earner so far is Canadian stakes winner Crysta’s Court, and he also has stakes-placed Professor’s Ride, Silent Sam, and Silent Star to his credit north of the border.

“Silent Name is a perfect fit for Ontario,” said Andy Stronach, son of Adena Springs owner Frank Stronach. “He nearly set a track record on Polytrack, and his progeny love that surface.”

Silent Name, a Japanese-bred son of Sunday Silence out of the Danehill mare Danzigaway, was a stakes winner in France before coming to the United States, where he won a pair of Grade 2 races and was Grade 1-placed.
