According to the Daily Racing Form, Candy Boy is headed to the Grade 2, $750,000 West Virginia Derby on August 2 after a distant second-place performance to Shared Belief in the Los Alamitos Derby.

“I won't be running against Shared Belief anytime soon,” said trainer John Sadler.

Candy Boy won the Grade 2 Robert B. Lewis Stakes in February before finishing behind California Chrome twice – a third-place finish in the Santa Anita Derby and a 13th-place finish in the Kentucky Derby. The Los Alamitos Derby was his first race back since the first Saturday in May.
