Giacomo, winner of the Kentucky Derby in 2005, was a graded stakes performer at ages two, three and four, and earned more than $2.5 million during his racing career. Currently standing at Adena Springs in Paris, Kentucky, Giacomo is by the emerging sire Holy Bull out of the Stop The Music mare Set Them Free.

Silent Name, a multiple graded stakes winner by the legendary Sunday Silence, also stands in Kentucky. Stakes placed at two, a multiple stakes winner in Europe at three, and a Grade 2 winner at ages four and five in America, Silent Name is out of the Danehill mare Danzigaway.

Olmodavor, who stands at Adena Springs in Ocala, Florida, is by champion sire A.P. Indy out of the El Gran Senor, Grade 1 winning mare Corrazona. A multiple graded stakes winner, Olmodavor is already a sire of eight winners, including two stakes winners, from his first crop.

Also in Ocala, Sligo Bay was Florida’s number three second crop sire in 2008 and the only Grade 1 winner by the legendary Sadler’s Wells at stud in Florida. Winner of the Grade 1 Hollywood Turf Cup at age four, Sligo Bay is out of the Halo mare Angelic Song.

The 29th edition of the annual black-tie, holiday fundraising event will include dinner, dancing live and silent auctions, and a raffle for a Rolex watch from Haltom’s Jewelers. The Mistletoe Ball is open to the public and sponsorship opportunities for organizations and individuals are available.
