  • This handsome chestnut colt is a great fit for the West Coast as his sire, Sidney’s Candy, was absolutely dominant in Southern California as a 3-year-old. Trained by John Sadler, Sidney’s Candy captured the San Vincente (G2), San Felipe (G2), and Santa Anita Derby (G1) before competing in the Kentucky Derby. He switched to the grass that summer and won the LaJolla Handicap at Del Mar. Sidney’s Candy was transferred to trainer Todd Pletcher during the the summer of his 4-year-old year, and many of us watched him take them gate to wire in the 2011 Fourstardave Handicap at Saratoga.
     
  •  Many people agree that Sidney’s Candy is Candy Ride’s most brilliant, versatile son at stud. He sure was versatile, having won graded stakes races on dirt, turf, and synthetic. He also earned triple digit Beyer Speed Figures on all three surfaces.
     
  • Terry on Sidney’s Candy colt: He was the second horse we saw back at the barns, and he stuck with me. He’s a very intelligent looking individual who has incredible balance. When Sidney’s Candy was in Todd Pletcher’s barn I remember Todd commenting on how athletic and balanced he was. This colt resembles his sire in a big way.
