Wilburn, the Grade 2-winning son of Bernardini, sired a pair of fillies as his first reported foals on the ground. The first was a filly born on Jan. 9 at Justice Farm in Ohio.

Out of the Lemon Drop Kid mare Kaygee Ess Free, the dark bay or brown filly was bred and is owned by Justice Farm. The second foal is a dark bay or brown filly out of Sweet Politics, by Political Folly, and she was born early Tuesday morning in Kentucky. Mike and Jeanne Owens are the breeders.

Wilburn was a sale-topping 2-year-old and multiple stakes-winning 3-year-old on the racetrack. He scored his biggest victory in the 2011 Indiana Derby (G2), defeating Grade 1 winners Shackleford and Caleb's Posse.

Retiring as the first son of Bernardini at stud, Wilburn was well-received by breeders in his first season in 2012. He covered 169 mares in his first book and was a participant in Spendthrift's “Share The Upside” program.

Out of the graded stakes-winning Carson City mare Moonlight Sonata, Wilburn will stand his second season at Spendthrift in 2013 for a fee of $6,500 stands and nurses.
