"He's in good shape today," McAnally said. "That was really an exciting race; he's a very special horse. I'm not sure if he'll run again before (the Pacific Classic) because he's such a good work horse, I could just work him between now and then and he'd be fit enough to go the mile and a quarter. I'll just have to wait and see."
With his second American win for owners Sid and Jenny Craig, Candy Ride remained undefeated in five career starts.
