Champion Macho Uno , who stands at Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs near Paris, Ky., will shuttle to Brazil for the 2010 Southern Hemisphere breeding season. The 12-year-old son of Holy Bull will hold court at Sao Jose da Serra Farm in a deal that involves a partnership with ACPCCP (Parana Breeders & Owners Association of Brazil). ACPCCP and Adena Springs have agreed to use part of the revenue generated to provide bonus purses to Brazilian breeders and to sponsor the Macho Uno Cup, to be run in 2014.
Eduardo Buffara, director of Turf Breeding Service, said that “Macho Uno will be the most important stallion to ever stand in the Parana state.”
“North American breeders have been very supportive of our first-year Brazilian stallion Einstein, and we are sure that Macho Uno will find that same kind of support among Brazilian breeders,” said Adena Springs president Andy Stronach.
Macho Uno, out of the Blushing Groom mare Primal Force, has sired nine stakes winners, including grade I winners Macho Again and Wicked Style. His 2010 stud fee at Adena Springs is $25,000.
