Once a part of The Stronach Group's internationally renowned breeding and training business, Adena Springs Farm, located in Paris, Ky, served as a cornerstone to the company's formerly integrated breeding and training operations in Ontario, Florida and elsewhere.
The hands-on visionary of the complex, Frank Stronach, purchased the land in 2005 and built a state-of-the-art facility on the 2,300-acre property that opened in 2007, capable of handling over 1,000 horses.
"We are delighted to make this early campaign announcement on behalf of our client, The Stronach Group, and are truly honored and privileged to be able to do so at this year's Fasig-Tipton illustrious Night of the Stars November Sale event," said Bernard Uechtritz or real estate firm Icon Global, which is handling the sale. "The Adena Springs contributions, records, awards, and innovations to the Thoroughbred racing industry internationally are incredible and, in some cases, unsurpassed in the annuals of modern racing history.
"This farm is one of the two largest of its kind under one fence in the Lexington Bluegrass, the other is the renowned WinStar Farm in Versailles, owned by a Texan."
"Although the complex was originally built for Thoroughbred breeding operations, its world-class infrastructure is multifaceted, versatile, and can easily convert to any equestrian discipline showplace, a horse park or even a co-op operation with central amenities.
"The farm is also easily subdivided into several smaller tracts for cohesive or separate ownerships along with private access. We will be offering the property in several parcel and custom parcel combinations.
"The market is very strong right now for all sizes of horse farm property, and even as we now prepare the farm for showings, we have early interest as word has gotten out. We will soon be announcing our Kentucky representative team as we progress towards making the farm and data room available for qualified buyer viewing and negotiations."
