Grade 1 winner Twirling Candy's first foal was born at Calumet Farm on Jan. 13.

Grade 1 winner Twirling Candy was represented by his first foal on Jan. 13, a filly born at Calumet Farm in Lexington, Ky.

The bay filly, out of the A.P. Indy mare Silent Moccasins, is bred and owned by Brad Kelley's Bluegrass Hall LLC. Kelley is leasing historic Calumet from a trust that purchased the property in May 2012.

Silent Moccasins, dam of one winner from three runners, is a half-sister to Quiet Resolve, Canada's Horse of the Year in 2000. Their dam, the stakes-winning No Louder mare Quiet Cleo, is a half-sister to Canadian champion Eye of the Sphynx, dam of Canadian champion Eye of the Leopard and Canadian classic-placed Hotep.

Twirling Candy, a 6-year-old Candy Ride horse, won seven of 11 career starts for earnings of $944,900. His signature victory came in the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes in 2010, in which he completed seven furlongs on a new dirt track at Santa Anita Park in 1:19.70, breaking a track record previously held by Spectacular Bid.

He also won three Grade 2 events, taking both the Strub Stakes and Californian Stakes in 2011 to go along with the 2010 Del Mar Derby.

Out of the Chester House mare House of Danzig, Twirling Candy entered stud at Lane's End near Versailles, Ky. for a fee of $15,000 in 2012. He will stand for $12,500 this season.
