CANDY MY BOY TEAM CONFIDENT

Candy My Boy has the appearance of an outsider on paper going into Saturday’s Grade II $1,000,000 TwinSpires.com Louisiana Derby at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots. Exiting a fourth-place finish after setting the pace and fading to 2 ¼ lengths back at the finish in the Grade II $400,000 Risen Star Stakes on Feb. 20, the two-time winner – both at Fair Grounds – will try to improve, while stepping up in trip for owner Frank Mancari and trainer Roger Brueggemann. Still, the Brueggemann camp is adamant that the son of Candy Ride and stakes winner Runway Rosie can run a big one in the 1 1/8 miles meet centerpiece.

Stonetastic Goes the Distance in Grade 2 Inside Information


HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Stoneway Farm’s Stonetastic went into Saturday’s $200,000 Inside Information (G2) at Gulfstream Park with a record of 0-for-4 in seven furlong races.

After the 5-year-old mare set a blistering early pace while running the first half mile in 44.35 seconds, the confidence of those who made her their 6-5 favorite might have been shaken a bit. However, the Kelly Breen-trained mare easily stretched her abundant speed to the wire under Paco Lopez, overpowering nine rivals with a 3 ¾-length score.

More Rebel Stakes Quotes - Baffert included


Winning Bob Baffert, trainer Cupid - "You never know what they're going to do when they ship, and when there are 14 horses (in the field). He missed the break a little bit, and I had told Martin (Garcia) that the last time we went there we got destroyed leaving the gate. Once he got the lead down the backside, he was going pretty fast. He showed he's improving and he's a fast horse. Down the backside, he looked like he was really doing it easier than the time said. Turning for home, I don't know what it was, but he looked a little green there and lost a little momentum. He was on the rail tight and was probably looking around. He was maybe too close to the rail, and I've seen horses do that. He's a lightly raced horse.

"I am so happy that he ran so well, especially for Martin. He works so hard getting these horses ready and he got the win. I'm happy for the Coolmore (owners) gang, too. I knew going in he was a nice horse. But he never had been tested and that was a pretty strong bunch. That was like the Tapit Rebel.

$900,000 Rebel Stakes (G2) Quotes


Winning jockey Martin Garica, Cupid - “It’s hard for horses to break their maiden and then step up to this kind of company with this many people around and win, but he did. He’s still green. When we hit the top of the stretch, he got lonely and he locked in on the other horse that was coming up on the outside he responded one more time. He showed a lot of ability and we know he can run. He really proved today that he is improving. The distance doesn’t matter, he can go as far as he wants.”
