Ignacio Correas IV
Walkwithapurpose is by unbeaten Argentine champion Candy Ride out of the stakes-placed Broad Brush mare Lightning Lydia.
Candy Ride was already a star in his native Argentina before coming to the United States and boosting his reputation with a win in the Grade 1 Pacific Classic and Grade 2 American Handicap.
The bay has found just as much success in the breeding shed by siring the likes of Misremembered, Sidney’s Candy and Twirling Candy, just to name a few of his Grade 1-winning offspring.
Walkwithapurpose began her career, like her dam, in Maryland but did a bit better than Lightning Lydia by romping in three straight stakes events. Lightning Lydia didn’t break her maiden until transferring to Turf Paradise, which turned out to be her only win.
The bay mare has done better as a broodmare, foaling Walktwithapurpose as well as her half-siblings stakes victress Charged Cotton and stakes-placed Go Marie Tu.
Lightning Lydia is herself a full sister to multiple Grade 1 hero and sire Schossberg, and this female family has also produced Canadian Horse of the Year and multiple champion Kennedy Road.
