Candy Ride Colt Brings $300,000

A strapping Candy Ride colt became the highest-priced yearling sold so far during the Keeneland January horses of all ages sale in Lexington when he brought $300,000 during the second session’s first hour Jan. 11.

Brian Graves, the director of sales for Gainesway Farm, purchased the flashy chestnut in the name B G Stables, outlasting WinStar Farm’s former co-owner, Bill Casner, who was sitting in the sale pavilion with former WinStar president and CEO Doug Cauthen.

“I just really liked this horse, and I decided to stick my neck out,” said Graves, who puts together pinhooking partnerships and plans to resell the colt later this year at a yearling auction. “We’ll see how it goes. I plan on taking him to the farm and taking as good of care of him as possible.”

The yearling is the first foal out of the winning Gentlemen mare Gentlemen’s Crown, who is a half sister to 2009 El Camino Real Derby (gr. III) winner Chocolate Candy (by Candy Ride). Chocolate Candy also captured the 2008 Real Quiet Stakes at Hollywood Park and the California Derby at Golden Gate Fields. His other efforts included runner-up finishes in the Santa Anita Derby (gr. I) and El Cajon Stakes at Del Mar in 2009, and a third-place finish in the 2008 Cashcall Futurity (gr. I).
