Sidney's Candy (foaled January 27, 2007 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. He is sired by increasingly important Candy Ride out of the Storm Cat mare Fair Exchange.

Racing Career

Sidney's Candy set a new track record for five and one half furlongs (1:02.71) in his maiden win on August 22, 2009, at Del Mar. He was sent to the sidelines following the race due to sore shins. He returned to the track in an allowance race at Santa Anita on December 30th and finished fourth after hopping and stumbling at the start.

He began his three year old season with an impressive victory in the seven furlong GII San Vicente Stakes. He followed that up with a half-length victory in the one and one sixteenth mile GII San Felipe Stakes, winning over previously undefeated graded stakes winner Caracortado.

Sidney's Candy won the first Grade I of his career when he wired the field in the 2010 Santa Anita Derby, winning by four and a half lengths under jockey Joe Talamo. It was the first Santa Anita Derby victory for Talamo and Southern California-based trainer John W. Sadler.

Sidney's Candy started in the 20th position at the 2010 Kentucky Derby.
