Zensational  , whose $25,000 fee is the highest for a new stallion this year, has had his first mare confirmed in foal. He stands at John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Farms near Lexington.

Spectacular Malibu, the first mare bred to Zensational and the first one in foal, is a 6-year-old by Malibu Moon   out of the Spectacular Bid mare Spectacular You. Spectacular Malibu was a stakes winner at 2 and 4 and graded stakes-placed as a juvenile. She was a Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old in 2006. She earned a career total of $317,181.

Owned by Mark Stansell, Spectacular Malibu is boarded at M. Lyn Burleson’s Burleson Farms near Midway, Ky.

Zensational (Unbridled's Song—Joke, by Phone Trick) won three grade I stakes in 2009 and finished second in Eclipse Award balloting for best sprinter.
