Musketier to stand at Adena Springs Canada

Canadian champion Musketier has been retired to Adena Springs Canada for the 2013 breeding season.

A fixture on the French racing circuit over four seasons before invading North America, Musketier's biggest win overseas came in the 2004 Group 3 Prix de Conde at Deauville. He won six graded stakes following his importation to North America, winning the Grade 2 Elkhorn twice, the Grade 2 W.L. McKnight Handicap once, and the Grade 3 Singspiel three times.

Musketier was voted a Sovereign Award as Canada's champion turf male in 2011, and retires at age 10 with a mark of 50-11-7-6, $1,130,027 in earnings.

"He was a true competitor. Few horses over the years have been as tough and sound as Musketier," Hall of Fame trainer Roger Attfield said. "He was a pleasure to train and as consistent as they come."

Musketier is a son of legendary German stallion Acatenango and is out of the Linamix mare Myth and Reality.

A stud fee will be announced later this fall. Inquiries can be made to Eric Hamelback (859) 987-1798 or Liam O'Rourke (647) 960-7634,
