Twinspired, a stakes-winning son of Harlan's Holiday, and Louie Villain, a son of A.P. Indy, will enter stud in 2014 at Poplar Creek Horse Center in Bethel, Ohio.
In what trainer Mike Maker labeled a "maintenance work," Twinspired breezed five furlongs in 1:01 1/5 at the Churchill Downs' Trackside training center on April 30 in preparation for the Kentucky Derby.
Twinspired proved a deserving favorite when he captured the $50,000 WEBN Stakes at Turfway Park by 4 1/4 lengths on the night of Feb. 5.
Front-running Night Action left his seven 2-year-old rivals in the $200,000 Miller Lite Cradle Stakes behind on the far turn and drove to a four-length victory for jockey Victor Lebron on the River Downs turf course in Cincinnati on Sept. 1.
