More international success adds to good few days
Exciting two-year-old Taffy Candy and veteran Victor Kalejs combined to make it a successful and international few days for Schumer Bloodstock.
In the words of the TDN, two-year-old debutante Taffy Candy turned in an ‘Arazi-like move’ to sweep from last to first for a five-length success at Monmouth Park on Saturday. Trained by Eddie Plesa, the Twirling Candy filly is out of This Girl Rocks, a daughter of Tactical Cat purchased by Chad Schumer, as agent, for $24,000 at last year’s Keeneland November Sale. This Girl Rocks was sold in foal to first-year sire Accelerate, who commands a $20,000 fee; she has since produced a colt.
Meanwhile over in Sweden, former Champion Victor Kalejs added an eighth win to his record when successful at Bro Park.
The son of Spring Of Last was bought for just $10,000 as a yearling by Chad Schumer on behalf of Irish pinhooker Johnny Collins and has gone on to win three Listed races for trainer Roy Arne Kvisla.
