Macho Uno , sire of grade I winner Wicked Style from his freshman crop, will relocate from Frank Stronach's Adena Springs South near Williston, Fla., to stand the 2008 season at Adena Springs Kentucky near Paris. Among the leading first-crop sires in North America since July, Macho Uno will stand next year for $20,000 live foal, up from $12,500.
“Macho Uno exemplifies the best of our racing and breeding programs, and he deserves the opportunity to take up residence in Kentucky alongside his half-brother, Awesome Again,” Stronach said.“He won the premier 2-year-old race (Breeders' Cup Juvenile, gr. I) in the world, and was a graded stakes winner and Breeders’ Cup competitor every year he raced. His first crop firmly establishes him as a stallion with a future.”
Nine-year-old Macho Uno (Holy Bull--Primal Force, by Blushing Groom) has sired a dozen 2-year-old winners, including Lane’s End Breeders’ Futurity (gr. I) winner Wicked Style and multiple stakes winner Swifty Victress. A champion 2-year-old himself, he has first-crop earnings of nearly $950,000.
