Finding Candy was a seven year old thoroughbred gelding who died on the track in the first race at Parx racetrack on 5/16. He was run under false ownership. The stewards at Parx were notified of this and still chose not to do a "stewards scratch" while they investigated this discrepancy. This sadly ending with Candy's life ebbing away on a racetrack. He did not break down according to the charts, he was "eased, died on track"

A previous owner, Maggi Moss, had reached out to the actual owner Trevor who informed her that he was in fact the owner, the previous trainer treated the horse like crap and he had "fixed" him. That he would run him twice and give him to Maggi. That is when Maggi informed the stewards at Parx that Lauren Horan was not the owner and Martin Woodhouse a paper trainer.

The stewards brushed her off and Finding Candy was allowed to run. Trevor fixed him alright.

Here are Finding Candy's statistics: 55 lifetime starts: 5 wins/10 seconds/9 thirds earnings of 232,471.00

His 2017 stats: 8 starts; 0-0-2.

we need to demand the Pennsylvania Racing Commission and the Parx Stewards investigate and publish answers. Why did Finding Candy die? Why was he not scratched? Why was he allowed to run under false pretenses?
