Champion Jess Good Candy will stand the 2017 season at Lazy E Ranch at Guthrie, Oklahoma.

Rozella Pevehouse of PV Quarter Horse Farm and trainer Clint Crawford have confirmed that champion Jess Good Candy will stand the 2017 season at Lazy E Ranch in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

American Quarter Horse racing's sixth-ranked horse on the all-time earnings list, Jess Good Candy is the only undefeated horse among the sport's top 100 money earners. The colt has won all eight of his outs, including last year's All American Futurity (G1) and this year's Ruidoso Derby (G1), has banked $2,014,703, and he was the sport's 2015 champion 2-year-old.

Also, since 1983, when the AQHA started grading stakes, Jess Good Candy is one of only three stallions to win the All American Futurity during his juvenile campaign, then return the following season to win a Grade 1 derby at Ruidoso Downs; the others are Mr Master Bug (1982-83) and Ronas Ryon (1986-87).

"All of us at Lazy E are humbled with the addition of Jess Good Candy to our stallion battery," said Lazy E Ranch manager Butch Wise. "AQHA records show that Carl Pevehouse is one of the most successful breeders of all time. He ranks among the top 20 all-time leading breeders of money earners.

"Among those top 20, Carl ranks with AQHA Hall of Fame breeders Joe Kirk Fulton and the Allred Brothers as number one in percentage of starters to win," he added. "Another amazing figure about Carl's statistics is that he accomplished that record while having at least 200 fewer starters than the other 19 breeders on that list.

"The McKinney family and all of us at Lazy E are honored to have Jess Good Candy, the best horse that Carl Pevehouse ever raised, standing with us. Rozella Pevehouse and Clint Crawford have done an excellent job of raising this great horse, and we look forwar to working with them for a long, long time.

"Everyone who has seen this horse knows what an outstanding individual he is. He has such a presence about him. You combine that with his bone, soundness and dominating race record, and his 'Candy' pedigree, saying that he is 'the complete package' may sound trite, but he is the total and complete package."

Jess Good Candy's 2017 fee will be $9,500.
