Paul and Karen Eggert's versatile Grade I winner Ollie's Candy (Candy Ride {Arg}) will be offered for sale during Book 1 of the Keeneland November sale on Nov. 9–two days after she competes in the GI Breeders' Cup Distaff.

“Ollie's Candy's Grade I talent combined with her pedigree and conformation make her a tremendous prospect to offer this November,” said Mark Taylor of Taylor Made Sales, which will consign the 5-year-old. “I also love the fact that she is an open book to breed to many of the top stallions from around the globe.”

Two-for-two on synthetic to kick off her career, the homebred annexed the GII Summertime Oaks as a sophomore on the dirt and was a narrow second in the GI American Oaks on turf. She got her Grade I last year in Del Mar's Clement L. Hirsch S. on the main track, and has been on the board despite tough trips in all four of her tries this term–all at the highest level–including a second in defense of her Hirsch title last time Aug. 2.

The John Sadler pupil is scheduled to prep for the Breeders' Cup in the GI Juddmonte Spinster S. at Keeneland Oct. 4. She currently has earnings in excess of $830,000 and has been on thee board in 12 of 14 career starts. Ollie's Candy is out of the Grade III winner Afternoon Stroll (Stroll).

“Ollie's Candy exemplifies the finest in Thoroughbred racing and has a global appeal that makes her an invaluable addition to any broodmare band,” Keeneland President-Elect and Interim Head of Sales Shannon Arvin said. “Keeneland is pleased to offer a broodmare prospect of her class, talent and promise.”
