Big Day for Candy Ride Offspring

Progeny of Candy Ride, who won the 2003 $1-million Pacific Classic, swept the final three races on Saturday's race card at Del Mar, highlighted by the runaway and record performance by Sidney's Candy in the La Jolla Handicap.

 

Book-ending the brilliant display by Sidney's Candy were Clubhouse Ride in the eighth race, a $50,000 maiden special weights event for 2-year-olds that was packed with classic pedigrees, and Sugarinthemorning in the 10th, a race for Cal-bred 2-year-old filly maidens, also with a $50,000 purse. Trainer Ron McAnally said this morning Sugarinthemorning could show up next in the Grade I Darley Debutante on Saturday, September 4, a race to which the filly is nominated.

 

Saturday's triple gave Candy Ride six winners at the meet after19 days. Joining Sidney's Candy, who was bred by Jenny Craig and her late husband, Sidney, and races for the Craig Family Trust, as a stakes winner this meet is Twirling Candy, who won the track's opening-day $100,000 Oceanside Stakes at a mile on turf.

 

Though not a winner, another Candy Ride stakes runner came close when Thisoneforyou finished second in the Fleet Treat Stakes.

 

Candy Ride stands at Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Ky., for a fee of $25,000. The undefeated Argentine-bred was bought by Sidney and Jenny Craig just prior to the Pacific Classic. Jenny Craig remains a majority owner in the stallion.

 

Other prominent runners for the sire include Chocolate Candy, who was fifth in the 2009 Kentucky Derby for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer; Evita Argentina, who won Del Mar's 2008 Sorrento Stakes for trainer John Sadler, and Misremembered, winner of the 2010 Santa Anita Handicap for breeder-owner-trainer Bob Baffert.
