•Get Happy Mister Named Colorado-Bred HOY, 6/29 •
Get Happy Mister was named the 2014 Colorado-bred Horse of the Year at the Colorado Thoroughbred Breeders Association awards dinner held June 27 at Arapahoe Park.
The award honored one of the best campaigns in the history of Colorado horse racing. Get Happy Mister completed an undefeated 2014 season at Arapahoe with five victories, four of them in stakes races. His top performance came in a 2 3/4-length victory in the $100,000 Arapahoe Park Classic last August.
Bred in Colorado by Willard Burbach, the 5-year-old First Samurai gelding out of the Elusive Quality mare Sara Margaret, is owned by Annette Bishop, trained in Colorado by Kenneth "Butch" Gleason, and ridden in Colorado by Mike Ziegler.
Based in Southern California early this year, in the barn of Mark Tsagalakis, Bishop's son-in-law, Get Happy Mister won the $100,000 San Simeon Stakes (gr. IIIT) April 19 Santa Anita Park in his first race on turf with Tyler Baze aboard.
With that victory, Get Happy Mister became the highest-earning Colorado-bred ever at $384,928, passing the $342,783 career earnings of Cut of Music.
"He's an outstanding horse. He's very deserving," Bishop said.
