It’s true! Here is your chance to walk the roads of Claiborne Farm’s broodmare and foaling division! We are excited to share the news about the first annual Runhappy 5K and 2.5K Run/Walk being held at Claiborne Farm on Friday, September 21st at 6 PM!
This inaugural race celebrates the racing career of Claiborne Farm stallion and Champion Sprinter, Runhappy, who retired to stud in 2017. Runhappy received the accolades of Eclipse Champion Sprinter and Eclipse Champion 3-year-old in 2015. He is a three-time Grade 1 winning millionaire who was undefeated 7 for 7 in sprinting competition including the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Sprint and the Grade 1 King’s Bishop.
We are happy to announce that all proceeds from the inaugural Claiborne Farm Runhappy 5K will be going to Second Stride. Second Stride is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization providing professional rehabilitation, retraining, and placement for retired thoroughbred racehorses in qualified homes so that they may reach their full potential in a productive second career. In fact, Second Stride is currently home to one of Claiborne’s formers runners, Reflection.
