He’s A Dandy Candy Wins at Arlington on 09/03/16 To Lead Off the 4 Race Weekend DTD Superfecta
Dare To Dream Stable’s He’s A Dandy Candy proved victory is sweet redemption after dispatching his other 8 rivals and finally breaking his maiden in this 5 furlong turf dash. It’s not the first time the good looking gray son of Sidney’s Candy has crossed the finish line first, as he looked like a winner two races back only to be questionably disqualified for interference in the stretch. It was a decision by the stewards which came under quite a bit of scrutiny, but this time Dandy left no doubt who was the winner. With jockey Mitchell Murrill back in the irons, Dandy was breaking from the rail in the field of nine. When the gates sprung open Dandy broke on top, but was immediately joined to his outside by String Puppet who was rushed up and determined to get the lead by jockey E.T. Baird. Murrill let String Puppet take a slight lead as he was very confident he had more horse than Baird and could push the button whenever he needed to. When they hit the bend the two foes were on even terms, but Dandy was traveling much easier. Straightening for home, He’s A Dandy Candy put away String Puppet and sprinted to the finish line. Sacred Crown made a brief bid to pass String Puppet for 2nd, but win was really never in doubt with Dandy crossing the finish line with one length to spare. It was another 1 1/4 lengths back to the Rivelli trained String Puppet for the show. See video replay below.
