He was bred in Venezuela. I believe he won the Venezuelan Triple Crown or several legs of it. He could really run, was bred very well and was producing well until he died young.
I had a nice Sweet Candy mare (Sweet Bridge). She was multiple stakes placed on the turf. She was very talented and so easy to work with, super kind mare. We sold her to a farm in S. America as a broodmare when she finished racing. They loved their Sweet Candy breeding down there.
I was just doing some more investigating on my geldings bloodlines. Anyway the corner of his JC papers say this is a "Corrected Certificate, issued in 1988". My geldings name is That Ray Bowline and he is not listed under the progeny of Sweet Candy, although on his papers his sire is listed as Sweet Candy (Ven) and his dam as Show the Boys - Troy our Boy.
I searched through all the listed progeny of Sweet Candy (Ven) and none of the dam's or BM Sire's matched what is listed on my horses papers.

If you put your horse's name in on Equineline, he comes up with that sire and dam. 9 starts, placed. Bred in OK by George Carnes. The corrected papers could mean his markings were noted incorrectly, or they had something misspelled.... who knows at this point. But his breeding is correct.
