2019 Big Red Spring, LLC
Candy Ride is undoubtedly one of the nation’s top sires, with Horse of the Year Gun Runner, a pair of two-year-old champions, and a plethora of other top horses to his credit. This colt is a half-brother to an impressive juvenile winner from a world-class family.
He has joined Jimmy Jerkens at Belmont Park. He was made eligible for the lucrative Virginia-Certified Residency Program. Named after the historic New England candy company that made the first conversation hearts, it was fitting to announce his name on Valentine’s Day – meet Necco.
