Spendthrift Farm’s Thousand Words, the undefeated Grade 2 winner at two and multiple stakes winner at three by Pioneerof the Nile, had his first mare confirmed in foal.

Covered on February 10 – opening day for Spendthrift’s breeding shed, the Unbridled’s Song mare Maymont scanned in foal Thursday, February 25 for owners Richard and Yvette Wira at Wynnstay Farm in Winchester, KY.

Maymont is out of the stakes-placed and stakes-producing El Prado (Ire) mare Miss Prado.

Thousand Words was an undefeated 2-year-old, breaking his maiden on debut before stretching out around two turns to capture the Los Alamitos Futurity (G2).

At three, he won the Robert B. Lewis (G3) at Santa Anita and went on to defeat leading 3-year-old Honor A. P. in the Shared Belief S. at Del Mar in a final major prep for the 2020 Kentucky Derby, earning a 104 Beyer.

Thousand Words, who is out of the multiple Grade 2-winning and Grade 1-placed mare Pomeroys Pistol, retired to Spendthrift for the 2021 breeding season and is standing for a fee of $7,500 S&N.
