Trainer John Sadler has taken advantage of Southern California’s unseasonably dry weather to prepare Candy Boy for his 3-year-old debut in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at 1 1/16 miles.

A bay son of Candy Ride owned and bred by Lee and Susan Searing’s CRK Stable, Candy Boy has not raced since finishing second by nearly six lengths to 2013 male 2-year-old champ Shared Belief in the Grade I CashCall Futurity on Hollywood’s Cushion Track Dec. 14.

“We had no (inclement) weather in January, so the training’s been uninterrupted,” Sadler said. “He’s been going nice and steady and we’re ready to go. He’s well-prepared.”

The field for the Lewis: Candy Boy, Gary Stevens, 2-1; Diamond Bachelor, Julien Leparoux, 6-1; Midnight Hawk, Mike Smith, 9-5; Home Run Kitten, Joe Talamo, 15-1; Cool Samurai, Corey Nakatani, 6-1; El Nino Terrible, Edwin Maldonado, 12-1; and Chitu, Martin Garcia, 7-2.
