Danzing Candy will be standing at Tom and Nancy Clark's Rancho San Miguel for the 2018 season at a fee of $5,000 as property of a syndicate. The deal was brokered between Brett Lindenbaum and Checkmate Thoroughbreds.
Multiple Grade 2 winner Danzing Candy, a son of Twirling Candy, earned $700,930 with his six wins from eleven starts and is the leading earner of his sire. The 4-year-old horse is out of Talkin and Singing (Songandaprayer). This is the female family of $4 million earner Better Talk Now and millionaire Medaglia Beat. Bred by Halo Farms, the colt raced for the partnership of Jim and Dianne Bashor and Halo Farms.
“Danzing Candy was a highly successful sophomore runner on the Derby Trail and followed that season with multiple grade two wins as a 4-year-old. His 4-year-old campaign saw him go wire-to-wire in the G2 Lone Star Park Handicap as well as a wire-to-wire win in the seven furlong G2 San Carlos,” said Clay Murdock, farm manager. “His California races at 2, 3 and 4 against some of the toughest competition in North America racing gives him a track performance unparalleled for a new stallion in our state. His sire Twirling Candy has over $4 million in 2017 progeny earnings and has become a very successful Lanes End stallion.”
“Brilliant speed that carries over a mile and perfect conformation equals great stallion potential,” said trainer Bob Baffert. “Danzing Candy has both.”
