"I caught him in in :10 and 3/5 and galloping out (seven furlongs) in :24, so that was a pretty good work," McAnally said.
"He just does it so effortlessly. He covers the ground so well and makes it look so easy. He's a good work horse, so he won't run until the Pacific Classic. He doesn't need to."Owners Sid and Jenny Craig specifically with the Pacific Classic in mind purchased Candy Ride. A group 1 winner in his native Argentina, he won his North American debut at 1 1/16 miles on June 7 by three lengths and followed that up with a three-quarter-length score in the American at nine furlongs on the turf.
Overall Candy Ride has earned $149,149.
McAnally also sent French Stakes winner Welcome Millenium out for a half-mile work in :49 1/5 over a firm turf course. The Arnold Zetcher colorbearer was 12th in the July 5 American Oaks at Hollywood Park after losing a shoe and suffering a troubled trip, but will look to redeem herself in Aug. 2 San Clemente Handicap (gr. IIT).
"I think she likes the turf course down here," McAnally said. "It was a good work for her."
Welcome Millenium, a multiple group III-placed runner in France, has earned $100,051.
