Prime Candidate a New Stakes-Winner for Denman

Twin Hills Stud’s Denman added a new stakes-winner to his tally on Friday evening when spritely seven year-old gelding Prime Candidate scored a popular win in the Listed ATC Christmas Classic (1200m).
Denman is the sire of Prime Candidate.
Prepared by Bjorn Baker and ridden by Jason Collett, Prime Candidate led all the way and scored by a length and a quarter taking his overall record to eight wins and seven placings from 26 starts with prizemoney topping $550,000.

Retained to race by his breeder Peter Chudleigh, Prime Candidate is a half-brother to stakes-winner Coolring and is the second stakes-winner among five winners from Group II winning sprinter Coolroom Candidate.

Coolroom Candidate was retired from stud duty in 2020 and her final two foals, a two year-old filly and yearling colt are both by Denman.


Prime Candidate is the 17th stakes-winner for Lonhro’s Group I winning son Denman, who has been based at Twin Hills in recent years after starting his stud career for Darley
