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.”

    I think he has a shot to be extremely successful at stud in CA and his female family is top notch. I missed the article where he was retired – what happened?

    Really liked this colt when he raced out here at Santa Anita. Can’t remember if I bet him in the Derby or not but I was rooting for him regardless. I’m not here to make waves but I always felt for Cliff Sise after he got the horse pulled from his barn and sent to Baffert. Here’s hoping for a successful career at stud and thanks for the memories D.C.!

    Very happy that we have Dancing Candy here in California. This comes after just getting Stanford here to stand at Tommy Town Thoroughbreds. I’m all smiles.
