Game Winner | Alys Emson

Game Winner (Candy Ride {Arg}), the champion 2-year-old male of 2018, has had his first mare confirmed in foal, officials at Lane's End announced Thursday.

The Machmer Hall-owned Desire Street (Congrats) was the first mare reported in foal to the son of Indyan Giving (A.P. Indy). The 9-year-old is a half-sister to SW & GSP Abraham (Distorted Humor); GISP Beat the Benchmark (Speightstown); and to Groton Circle, who produced SW Supreme Aura to the cover of Candy Ride in 2015. Desire Street's second dam includes MGSW & GISP Miss Isella (Silver Charm); GII Arkansas Derby hero Sir Cherokee (Cherokee Run); MSW Guam Typhoon (Distorted Humor); and MGSP Lady Linda (Torrential).

Raced by Gary and Mary West and trained by Bob Baffert, Game Winner was a perfect four-for-four during his championship season, with victories in the GI Del Mar Futurity, GI American Pharoah S. and GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile. He added a five-length score in the 2019 GIII Los Alamitos Derby and was retired with a record of 8-5-2-0 and earnings of $2,027,500.

Game Winner, one of three sons of Candy Ride at Lane's End, stands for a fee of $30,000.
