Paradise Woods Retired; Ollie’s Candy, Serengeti Empress To Race In 2020

Two-time Grade 1 winner Paradise Woods has officially been retired from racing, according to drf.com. The 5-year-old daughter of Union Rags finished last of 11 in Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Distaff, and trainer John Shirreffs indicated that she will be sent to Lane’s End Farm to begin a broodmare career.

Paradise Woods retires with earnings of $1,123,890 and a record of 5-3-3 from 18 career starts.

Meanwhile, Distaff fourth-place finisher Ollie’s Candy has been withdrawn from the Keeneland November sale and will race in 2020, according to a Twitter post from John Sadler. The 5-year-old Candy Ride mare won the Grade 1 Clement L. Hirsch at Del Mar earlier this year, and will be aimed at a repeat appearance in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff in 2020.

Distaff winner Blue Prize has made her final career start, while connections announced before the race that runner-up Midnight Bisou would race on next year.

Third-place finisher Serengeti Empress, winner of the Kentucky Oaks earlier this year, is getting a break but will return to the races in 2020, trainer Tom Amoss posted on Twitter.
