First Winner for Danzing Candy at Golden Gate


Danzing CandyBenoit

Love Candy became the first winner for his freshman sire Danzing Candy (Twirling Candy) with a decisive debut score at Golden Gate. Dispatched at 6-1, the gray broke sharply and settled in a tracking third early, tugging his way between rivals through a :22.733 first quarter. Breaking free of his foes in the lane, Love Candy extended clear to graduate by 2 3/4 lengths over Highland Ghost (Shaman Ghost).

Danzing Candy won a trio of graded stakes for Hall of Famer Bob Baffert before his career was cut short by an injury. He stands at Rancho San Miguel in California. Love Candy is the first foal out Love Winning, who is also responsible for the yearling colt Winning Lover (Slew's Tiznow) and a 2021 filly by Curlin to Mischief.
