Classy Danzing Candy will be seeking his fourth consecutive victory Saturday when he heads a deep line-up of eleven runners in the Grade II $200,000 Pat O'Brien Stakes at seven furlongs.

Danzing Candy, a four-year-old son of Twirling Candy owned by Halo Farms, Bashor and Bashor and trained by Bob Baffert, figures to go postward a solid favorite under jockey Joe Talamo. Most recently, the colt won the San Carlos at Santa Anita from wire-to-wire going seven furlongs.

Opposing Danzing Candy will be Moe Candy, Victor Espinoza; Solid Wager, Martin Pedroza; Mr. Hinx, Drayden Van Dyke; Silent Bird, Kent Desormeaux; Blameitonthelaw, Evin Roman; Kobe's Back, Flavien Prat; Calculator, Rafael Bejarano; Home Run Kitten, Brice Blanc; Giant Expectations, Gary Stevens, and Denman's Call, Tyler Baze.

The Pat O'Brien Stakes is a “Win and You're In” qualifying race for the $2 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile Saturday, Nov. 4, at Del Mar with the winner earning an automatic spot in that contest.

    If a railbird asks me my pick while waiting in line to place a bet….I’ll break out in song — “I Want Candy”.
