Einstein (dk br, 23 october 2002, by Spend a Buck x Gay Charm, by Ghadeer)
Adena Springs; $7,500
Certainly the most interesting new stallion for breeders craving an outcross, Einstein has a race record of high merit, as well as a physique tested by years of competition. The horse is advertised as going to stud at Adena for 2010, but he will also race at least once in the coming year, and there is suspicion that he might spend another season in competition before retiring to the paddocks. and after a “minor soft-tissue injury” while training in mid-January, Einstein was officially retired.
A very handsome son of Kentucky Derby winner Spend a Buck, Einstein is one of that stallion’s best offspring from his few seasons covering in Brazil. Selected there and exported to the US without racing in his homeland, Einstein has adapted to Northern Hemisphere racing conditions admirably.
Over five seasons of racing (2005 through 2009), Einstein has won 11 races from 30 starts, earning $2,945,237. Even more importantly, the nearly black horse has won five times at G1 level, with three seconds and three thirds at the premium grade. He’s a splendid racehorse and a credit to everyone managing his lengthy career.
He will bring some admirable and highly desirable qualities of toughness and class to his mates.
