Jess Good Candy, last year's champion 2-year-old and All American Futurity (G1) winner, will make his sophomore debut in Sunday's $70,000 Mr Master Bug Stakes (R) for Oklahoma-breds at Remington Park.

A 3-year-old son of Good Reason SA trained by Clint Crawford for PV Quarterhorses LLC of Ratliff City, Oklahoma, Jess Good Candy will be making his first start since September 7, when the colt scored a wire-to-wire, neck victory in the 440-yard, $3-million All American Futurity at Ruidoso Downs. Jess Good Candy has won all four of his outs and has banked $1,519,240.

Jess Good Candy drew post 6 and will be ridden by Ivan Carnero.
