Musketier to stand at Adena Springs Canada

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

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, lorourke@adenastallions.com.
