How Good is Twirling Candy???

Is he like Seattle Slew, the only horse ever to win the Triple Crown while still undefeated? Or maybe he is more similar to Goggles McCoy who won his first four races before going down in flames in Del Mar’s recent El Cajon Stakes. The answer likely lies somewhere in between. Only time will tell whether Twirling Candy will be closer to a great champion or simply an allowance horse who started his career off in impressive fashion, but one thing is for sure, the sophomore son of Candy Ride has the potential to be a superstar. His strong talent was certainly on display yesterday as Twirling Candy forged a less than straight path, under rider Joel Rosario, to score a very easy 3 ¼ length victory in the Grade 2 Del Mar Derby. The win maintained Twirling Candy’s unblemished record, and it also has his connections ready to shoot for the stars.

Really starting to like this horse. If he is going to start in the Classic that would be something. He has the god given talent to win, but he's never been against horses like he would face there.

The Goodwood should be a telling race.
