2YO GET HAPPY MISTER TAKES $100,000 STAKES BY 9 1/4

This 2-year-old colt by FIRST SAMURAI remains undefeated in four starts after he demolished the field, including three Southern California invaders, by 9 1/4 lengths in the $100,000 Gold Rush Futurity. GET HAPPY MISTER was on the pace in this six-furlong event at Arapahoe through early fractions of : 21 3/5 and :44 1/5 before he took command in the stretch and widened his lead with every stride to the wire in a final time of 1:08 3/5. Bred by Willard Burbach, owned by Tangarae Farms and trained by Kenneth Gleason, this juvenile has now won his four races by a combined margin of over 31 lengths.

And at Saratoga on August 18, SONOFASAMURIA, another 2-year-old colt by FIRST SAMURAI, scored a three-length Maiden Special Weight win  at 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Making only his second start, he settled in fourth early on, split rivals passing the 3/16’s pole, then quickly separated himself from those two and went on to win under strong hand urging. In his July debut, SONOFASAMURAI finished a game third in a one mile Maiden Special on the Ellis Park turf course.
