Candy Ride, bred in Argentina, is undefeated, having won all three of his starts in America, including a stunning victory over Medaglia d'Oro in the Pacific Classic.
Trainer Ron McAnally said Monday that Sid and Jenny Craig's Candy Ride is definitely out of the Breeders' Cup Classic - Powered by Dodge (gr. I), and will not race again this year."It was all my decision," McAnally said. "The Craigs left it up to me. I felt he needed a rest. Even though he's run only six times in his career he's still never had any break. And he just turned 4 this month. I just felt this was best for the horse. We've already pulled his shoes off and we'll let him relax for six or seven weeks."
