Former Florida sire Hunters Bay will be introduced to Ontario breeders during an Adena Springs North open house being held Oct. 8 from noon to 3 p.m. EDT.
The 9-year-old son of Ghostzapper is a grade I-placed, multiple grade III winner of more than $600,000 whose first crop are yearlings of 2016. His runner-up effort in the Ricoh Woodbine Mile Stakes (Can-IT) to two-time U.S. Horse of the Year Wise Dan helped secure his own championship honors as Canada's 2012 champion older horse.
Reservations are required to attend the open house, which will include a drawing for three no-guarantee seasons to Giant Gizmo, Milwaukee Brew, and Silver Max. Anyone interested in attending should contact the farm at (905) 841-0336 to make a reservation or go to the Adena Springs North website.
Giant Gizmo is currently the leading Canadian sire by number of black-type stakes and graded stakes winners. Veteran Milwaukee Brew is Ontario's leading sire of lifetime stakes winners, while record-setting grade I winner Silver Max, the last horse to defeat Wise Dan, will enter his second season in 2017.
Adena Springs North stallions have collectively sired over a third of all black-type winners by Canadian stallions in 2016 and two-thirds of all graded stakes winners, according to the farm.
