Mr. Candyman is a horse that Phillip Dutton thought was a “world-beater” after finishing in fourth place at Galway Downs CCI3* last fall. The 9-year-old Holsteiner had a quiet summer while Phillip focused on preparing for the Olympic Games, but he says that now it’s Mr. Candyman’s turn in the spotlight.
“Elmo,” owned by Ann Jones, Bridget Colman, Caroline Moran and Tom Tierney, returned to FEI competition last weekend in top form, winning the Plantation Field CIC3* with only 2.8 time penalties to add to his initial score of 46.9, a performance that Phillip said raises his hopes for the horse’s future.
