Adena Springs Farm announced today that multiple graded stakes winner and Canadian Champion Alpha Bettor, and Grade 1 winner Mast Track have joined the stallion ranks in California.
Adena Springs' homebred Alpha Bettor, the Sovereign Award winner as Canada's champion older horse, was a winner every year he raced from 2 to 8, won four graded stakes and retires with lifetime earnings of $838,275. Over the course of his championship season, Alpha Bettor tallied in the Eclipse Stakes (G2), Autumn Stakes (G2) and the Seagram Cup (G3), a race he was victorious in the previous season. In his final start this year, Alpha Bettor rallied determinedly to capture the Portland Meadows Mile Handicap in just his second effort on dirt. Bred in Kentucky, Alpha Bettor is a chestnut son of Alphabet Soup out of the Relaunch mare Scatter Buy.
Mast Track, a bay son of Mizzen Mast out of the French bred mare Nawal, entered stud in 2011. Several impressive winners have represented Mast Track, including multiple stakes-placed Shez A Masterpiece, an earner of nearly $150,000. Wire-to-wire victories in the $750,000 Grade 1 Hollywood Gold Cup, and Grade 3 Native Diver Handicap helped boost Mizzen Mast's lifetime earnings to $928,835. Mast Track was bred in Kentucky by legendary Hall-of-Fame trainer Bobby Frankel.
“This is an incredible opportunity for Daehling Ranch and the California breeding community,” said Joe Daehling. “Anytime you can bring in a pair of stallions that were talented enough to compete against the best of their generation and accumulate nearly two million in earnings between them, you have to appreciate the potential for future success with their progeny.”
