Serious I Candy Scores at Oaklawn

Franklin Ave. Equine’s Serious I Candy (Candy Ride {Arg}) kicked off the stable’s Oaklawn meet on a winning note Friday when she forced her way up the fence to prevail gamely in the fifth race under an excellent ride by Ricardo Santana, Jr. Claimed back in November with trainer Jason Barkley, she hit the board twice at Turfway, but hadn’t quite run to expectations over a synthetic surface she didn’t seem to care for. After looking back and analyzing her two prior wins, it was determined that she needed to be ridden a bit more patiently. Barkley took off the blinkers, and she worked lights out over the local track Jan. 16. She was allowed to settle in just off the pace this time, and it paid off. Since teaming up, Barkley and Franklin Ave. have won four of 12 races (33.3%) together and have been in the top three 50% of the time. We are currently recruiting co-owners for our first claiming partnership. Visit the Current Opportunities section of this site for some more details or contact us for a complete prospectus.
