Candy Éclair (foaled April 14, 1976 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred and raced by prominent Pennsylvanian horsewoman, Adele Paxson, she was a granddaughter of the most important sire of the 20th Century, Northern Dancer. She was out of the mare Candy's Best, a daughter of the 1963 Santa Anita Derby and Preakness Stakes winner, Candy Spots.
Candy Éclair was conditioned for racing by Allen King and winter-trained at the Aiken Training Track in Aiken, South Carolina. Undefeated in all five of her starts at age two, she shared 1978 American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors with It's In The Air. Candy Éclair won stakes races again at age three and four, finishing her career having won fifteen of her twenty-three starts. She was elected to the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame on March 17, 1979.
As a broodmare, Candy Éclair produced five foals, none of which met with racing success.
