Dulcify (1975–1979) was a New Zealand-bred Thoroughbred racehorse. His British-bred sire was the 1970 Irish 2,000 Guineas winner, Decies, a grandson of Pharis, the very important French sire whom Thoroughbred Heritage says is considered one of the greatest French-bred runners of the century. Dulcify's dam was the Australian mare Sweet Candy, a daughter of 1957 Golden Slipper Stakes winner and Australian Racing Hall of Fame inducteeTodman.
Dulcify was a patient, come-from-behind runner. His most important career win came in the 1979 Cox Plate, which he won by a still-standing record of seven lengths. The betting favourite for the 1979 Melbourne Cup, he suffered a broken pelvis during the race and had to be euthanized.
Inducted into the Australian racing Hall of Fame in 2014
