Adena Springs Holds Ghostzapper's Fee to $85,000

Son of Awesome Again has 11 black-type winners this year to date.

Adena Springs Kentucky announced its 2019 stallion roster and fees Oct. 19, headlined by Ghostzapper , who will remain at a fee of $85,000. Also on the roster is multiple grade 1 winner Shaman Ghost , a champion son of Ghostzapper, who is relocating from California to Kentucky and will stand for $7,500.

"We are extremely pleased to have brought Shaman Ghost home from California to Adena Springs Kentucky," said Ben Walden, Adena Springs' director of marketing and bloodstock consultant. "He bred a strong book out there with Terry Lovingier and Mr. Stronach is eager to support him here.

"We've had unprecedented early-season requests in his sire, Ghostzapper," Walden added, "which bodes well for his upcoming breeding season."

A perennially high-ranking stallion, Ghostzapper is the sire of 10 grade 1 winners worldwide, nine millionaires, and five champions. He is represented this year by 11 black-type winners and five graded stakes winners, including grade 2 winner and grade 1-placed Proctor's Ledge and multiple graded winner and Canadian champion Holy Helena. Ghostzapper is also the damsire of this year's Triple Crown winner Justify , Eclipse champion Drefong, and grade 1 winner American Gal.

Shaman Ghost, who will have first foals in 2019, compiled a record of 8-3-2 from 17 starts and amassed earnings of $3,859,311. He won or placed in 10 stakes, including victories in the Woodward Stakes (G1), Santa Anita Handicap Presented by San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino (G1), Brooklyn Invitational Stakes (G2), and the Pimlico Special Handicap (G3). At 3, he won the prestigious Queens Plate Stakes and was named Canadian champion 3-year-old colt. He also finished second to champion Arrogate  in the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes (G1).
