Claiborne Announces 2021 Stud Fee for Eclipse Champion Runhappy

Eclipse Champion Sprinter Runhappy will stand for $10,000 LFSN in 2021, Claiborne Farm announced Nov. 16.

From 34 starters, 19 (56%) have finished in the money, with 5 maiden winners, 9 seconds, and 5 thirds.

In the sales ring, Runhappy’s first-crop yearlings commanded prices up to $700,000 in 2019. This year, his first-crop 2-year-olds sold for $475,000, $435,000, etc.

Undefeated in sprint competition, Runhappy won at six different tracks, scoring on both all-weather and dirt surfaces, while racing 100% medication-free.

His victories included the King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) at Saratoga, where he set a new stakes record, going seven furlongs in 1:20.54. It was the fastest running of the King’s Bishop in the race’s 32-year history and earned a 113 Beyer Speed Figure.

In the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1), Runhappy set a new track record at Keeneland, completing the distance in 1:08.54. His 108 Beyer Speed Figure was the year’s fastest by a three-year-old at six furlongs.
