Gary Player, who won nine majors during his golf career and is also a leading Thoroughbred breeder in his native South Africa, will be the first recipient of the Breeders' Cup Sports and Racing Excellence Award.
Eric Hamelback, who has been with Frank Stronach's Adena Springs twice during his career, has been named general manager of the Kentucky property.
For the third consecutive year, Frank Stronach's Adena Springs has been voted the outstanding breeder of the year.
Since the calendar switched centuries, two breeders have split the six Eclipse Awards handed out for breeding achievement. Juddmonte Farms won in 2001, 2002, and 2003. Now, Frank Stronach and his Adena Springs operation have garnered their third, voted the winner for 2005 after taking home the trophy in 2000 and 2004.
Frank Stronach could not have asked for anything more Oct. 30. The Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships was being held at Lone Star Park, owned by Stronach's Magna Entertainment Corp.
If the goal is to breed graded stakes winners, and it is hard to imagine anyone disagreeing with that goal, then Juddmonte Farms was the wagering favorite to win its third consecutive Eclipse Award as the outstanding breeder of 2003.
The goal of any breeder is to breed a horse that wins a major race. Frank Stronach's vast Adena Springs operation did just that and then some in 2000.
