Adena stallions now stand in Kentucky, Ontario, Canada and New York. Along with Silent Name and Norht Light, the Canadian roster includes two-time Santa Anita H. (G1) winner Milwaukee Brew, Champion Sire in Canada in 2009. Among the Adena stallions standing at McMahon Thoroughbreds in New York are Alphabet Soup, the first Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner to stand in the Empire State, and Belmont Stakes (G1) winner Touch Gold, the sire of four Grade 1 winners.
As if to emphasize both the breadth and depth of our commitment to the art and science of the Thoroughbred, Adena Springs has been the Leading Breeder in North America by earnings for 10 consecutive years (2003 - 2012). Adena Springs/Frank Stronach has also earned a record eight Eclipse Awards as Outstanding Breeder, including an unprecedented five consecutive awards from 2004 to 2008. We are the only breeder in history to win the Eclipse Award and the Sovereign Award the same year, and we achieved this feat four straight years from 2005 to 2008. Frank Stronach/Adena Springs has won a co-record nine Sovereign Awards as Outstanding Breeder in Canada across three different decades (1984, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010).
Frank Stronach/Stronach Stables has also earned a co-record nine Sovereign Awards as Outstanding Owner in Canada (1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2005) and a record-tying four Eclipse Awards as Outstanding Owner in North America (1998, 1999, 2000, 2008). The Adena Springs breeding program has produced three Broodmares of the Year since 2000: Baby Zip (2005), Primarily (Canada), Primal Force (2000).
Stronach Stable has bred and/or campaigned more than 225 stakes winners. This impressive collection is topped by Champions Ghostzapper, Macho Uno, Ginger Punch, Perfect Sting, and Phantom Light, Preakness Stakes (G1) winner Red Bullet, and the Grade I winners Game on Dude, Sugar Shake, Citronnade, Spun Sugar, Milwaukee Brew, Golden Missile and Collect the Cash.
Many of these runners have returned to Adena Springs Farm as stallions or as broodmares, ensuring the success of our program for generations to come.
