Hope he continues to do well, since I guess he's the last best son of Pulpit.

Very good news--continuing to wish this handsome guy well.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

This is worth $7500? Jesus.

I guess their thinking is since he's by Tapit and a half to New Year's Day, plus he won a handful of graded stakes at two, they might get some takers at that price. It seems fair to me.

Sidney's Candy to continue his stallion career in Turkey
Sidney's Candy is to become the first son of Candy Ride to stand in Turkey after the Grade 1 winner was purchased by Turkish Bloodstock to stand at Karacabey Stud for the 2018 breeding season.

The ten-year-old has entered a 30-day quarantine at Elmendorf Farm near Lexington ahead of shipping to Turkey in mid-October.

Retired to WinStar Farm in 2012, Sidney's Candy also shuttled to Haras La Paison in Argentina from 2012-17. He is the sire of four black-type winners including Converge, Lencelot and Pluja at Graded level.

Anchor Down stands for $10k. Their credentials are not entirely dissimilar.

I remember when Mohaymen was considered the East's best three-year-old, and all the excitement when the West Coast's Nyquist came east for the Florida Derby. Some figured it matched the two colts who were going to be the favorites in the Kentucky Derby.
Then Nyquist just trounced the grey colt. I don't think Mohaymen ever recovered from that beating. Even as a four-year-old, when one might have hoped he would have grown/gotten stronger, he looked like a pale shadow of that horse we saw early last year. No fight left. :(
There are quite a few Tapits out there now. I don't think Mohaymen would be anywhere on the list of his sons I would choose for my mythical mare. :oops:
