Today is Candy’s tenth birthday!
Bred by John Perdue, Vintage Candy is by the multiple graded stakes winner Formal Dinner and out of the unraced mare Mishapangua (Zafarrancho x Bleach). She retired from racing after 34 starts with a 3-5-5 record and $42,177 in earnings. Candy produced two colts before entering training for a career as a sport horse.
I acquired Candy in 2016. Since then, she’s been to dressage shows, foxhunts, and many trail rides. She’s a weird and very occasionally wonderful horse; I think I’m glad she’s in my life (even if she drives me insane sometimes).
Happy birthday, Vintage Candy!
