Point of Entry Arrives at Adena Kentucky

The five-time grade I winner retires to stud at Frank Stronach's farm.

Five-time grade I winner Point of Entry  arrived at Adena Springs Kentucky on the morning of Nov. 7 and was settling in well, according to general manager Eric Hamelback.

The 5-year-old son of Dynaformer joins Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Fort Larned  as the newest additions to the stallion register at Frank Stronach's farm. He will be available to viewers from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. EST as part of Adena Springs' autumn open house (more info here).

Rehabbed from a condylar fracture in his left hind cannon bone by Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey to contest the Nov. 2 Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) at Santa Anita Park, the Phipps Stable homebred ran fourth off a five-month break between races. He sustained the injury in the June 8 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap (gr. IT), a race he won at Belmont Park by 1 1/2 lengths.

Point of Entry was bred in Kentucky out of the Seeking the Gold mare Matlacha Pass, who is also the dam of multiple grade I winner Pine Island. Retired with a 9-3-1 record from 18 starts good for $2,494,490 in earnings, he defeated 2011 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) and Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) winner Animal Kingdom  in the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap (gr. IT) at the beginning of the year, and followed up with victories in the 2012 Man o' War (gr. IT) by 3 1/2 lengths, the Sword Dancer (gr. IT) by 4 lengths, and the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (gr. IT) by 1 3/4 lengths. He was also second by half a length to Little Mike in the Breeders' Cup Turf of 2012.

Stronach purchased a majority interest in Point of Entry for breeding purposes in early 2013, and maintained half interest in the horse during his racing career this season.
