Dulcify (1975-1979) was an New Zealand-bred Thoroughbred racehorse. His British-bred sire was the 1970 Irish 2,000 Guineas winner, Decies, a grandson of Pharis, the very important French sire whom Thoroughbred Heritage says is considered one of the greatest French-bred runners of the century. Dulcify's dam was the Australian mare, Sweet Candy, a daughter of the 1957 Golden Slipper Stakes winner and Australian Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Todman.
Dulcify was a patent come-from-behind runner who electrified racegoers with his dramatic charge down the home straight. His most important career win came in the 1979 Cox Plate which he won by a still standing record of seven lengths.  The betting favourite for the 1979 Melbourne Cup, he suffered a broken pelvis during the race and had to be euthanized.
