’s breeding program focuses on soundness and on powerful outcrosses,” said Eric J. Hamelback, general manager of
’s Adena Springs farm near Paris, Ky. “Einstein has won seven stakes, five of which are grade I. He’s a strong, solid individual and is still racing.”
Einstein is by 1986 Horse of the Year and Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Spend a Buck, who achieved plenty of success as a stallion in Brazil. Einstein’s pedigree is free of the pervasive blood of Mr. Prospector and Seattle Slew. Another popular stallion, Northern Dancer, appears once in the fourth generation of Einstein’s pedigree. Einstein was produced from Brazilian group I winner Gay Charm (by Ghadeer).
Einstein also captured the 2006 Gulfstream Park Breeders’ Cup Stakes (gr. IT); the 2007 Mervin H. Muniz Jr. Memorial Handicap (gr. (IIT) at Fair Grounds; and the 2008 Gulfstream Park Turf Stakes (gr. IT) and the Clark Handicap (gr. II) at Churchill Downs. Five of his six stakes-placings came in grade I events.
Hamelback said a decision has not been made as to when Einstein will enter stud. Helen Pitts will continue to train Einstein.
