Danzing Candy sailed home an authoritative 5 3/4-length at Santa Anita Thursday. On the lead from the start, Danzing Candy had company through a quarter in :23.14, but skipped clear after a half in :46.60. He had a two-length advantage at the top of the lane and and extended his lead down the lane, coming home unchallenged under a motionless Mike Smith. Eighth on debut at Del Mar Nov. 29, Danzing Candy graduated by a front-running 3 1/4 lengths over next-out winner Mr. Coker (Candy Ride {Arg}) at Santa Anita Dec. 26 while earning an 89 Beyer Speed Figure. The winner’s dam, Talkin and Singing, who sold for $50,000 while in foal to Tale of the Cat at the 2011 Keeneland November sale, was bred back to Twirling Candy last year. The mare is a half-sister to multiple Grade I winner Better Talk Now (Talkin Man). Her Candy Ride (Arg) 2-year-old colt is entered in the Fasig-Tipton Florida Sale as hip 98. Click for equineline.com catalogue-style pedigree or Equibase.com chart. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
