3YO GET HAPPY MISTER CLEAR IN OAKLAWN’S NORTHERN SPUR

Making his second start of the year, GET HAPPY MISTER went wire to wire in taking the one mile Northern Spur S. by 2 1/4 lengths on the Arkansas Derby undercard. Setting a moderate early pace, the 3-year-old colt by FIRST SAMURAI lengthened his lead around the far turn, opened up by 3 1/2 lengths near the top of the stretch and remained in front to the wire.

During his 2-year-old campaign, GET HAPPY MISTER went undefeated in four starts, winning three stakes, including  a 9 1/4-length romp in the $100,000 Gold Rush Futurity, getting the six furlongs in a swift 1:08 3/5. Bred by Willard Burbach, owned by Tangarae Farms and trained by Kelly Von Hemel, he won his first four starts by a combined margin of over 31 lengths. Lifetime, he has won five of his six starts.
