GET HAPPY MISTER Well Clear in $100,000 Arapahoe Park Classic

GET HAPPY MISTER is on a roll after winning his five straight start, four of which were stakes, taking the $100,000 Arapahoe Park Classic S. by 2 3/4 lengths on the meet-ending weekend of the track. Racing 1 1/8 miles in a field of eight, the 4-year-old son of FIRST SAMURAI sat just five lengths off the lead for the first half mile. He began his rally on the far turn, assumed command before they hit the top of the stretch and cruised home under mild urging. His string of four stakes wins in a row were at distances from six furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. GET HAPPY MISTER now has eight stakes victories and has won 10 of 13 career starts and has earnings of $324,928. His other stakes tallies include the one mile Northern Spur S. by 2 1/4 lengths at Oaklawn Park, and 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, GET HAPPY MISTER is out of the Elusive Quality mare, Sara Margaret, and races for Annette Bishop and trainer Kenneth Gleason.
