Scandicci was purchased at the 2015 Racing In Dubai sale for 105,000 AED. Formerly with Charlie Appleby and Godolphin he is exceptionally bred, by Distorted Humor out of an Indygo Shiner Group 1 placed mare.
Scandicci made an excellent debut at Meydan, finishing 2nd over an inadequate 7f. He then backed up over 8f and was again 2nd, bumping into a very impressive winner.
He unfortunately got very upset in the stalls on his 3rd start, in front of the big screen. This seemingly affected his love for racing and he was not the same horse on his following starts. He was sold at the April 2017 Horses in Training Sale to give new owners a try at restoring him to form.
