Adena Springs relocates Silent Name to Canada

GRADE 2 winner Silent Name will transfer to Canada this season, where he will stand as the property of Adena Springs and Michael Colterjohn at Gardiner Farms, Ontario for appoximately $4,000.

The son of Sunday Silence covered 105 mares during his first season at Adena Springs in Kentucky last season, and was scheduled to stand this season at that farm for $5,000.

"We recently announced that Sligo Bay's relocation to Canada demonstrated how committed Adena Springs is to the Ontario market, and with the decision to relocate Silent Name we are certainly underscoring our desire to race and breed in Ontario," said Andy Stronach, president of Adena Springs.

He added: "Silent Name has a powerhouse pedigree and is the only multiple Grade 1miler by Sunday Silence at stud in North America."

Campaigned by Wertheimer et Frere, Silent Name opened his racing career in France, where he won two Listed races and ran third in the Group 3 Prix du Pin.

Transferred to the US as a four-year-old, Silent Name developed into a leading miler on turf and Polytrack, landing the Grade 2 Arcadia Handicap and Grade 2 Commonwealth Breeders' Cup Stakes. He was also placed three times at Grade 1 level.

Silent Name is out of the  Group 3-winning mare Danzigaway, a Danehill half-sister to French sire Gold Away.
