Happymac is Runhappy for the 100K Bonus
Happymac is happy to run for the 100k bonus and the 70K purse in the 5th race at Keeneland this Saturday, 10-3-20. Trainer Steve Asmussen has this quick running 2 year-old colt by Runhappy primed and ready for this 6 furlong sprint. Ridden by Steve’s regular jockey Ricardo Santana jr.
Happymac drew the rail in full field of 12 juveniles. This youngster drew attention as he was pinhooked during last year’s Keeneland yearling sale for $360,000 and was RNA’d this year for $800,000 at the OBS June sales.
Making only his second start of his career, Happymac faced a stellar field in his debut at Saratoga when he faced a Chad Brown beast in Founder, while finishing fourth in a race run in 1:10 flat. Happymac earned a Equibase speed figure of 72 as he also faced Highly Motivated and Newbomb in that debut.
Highly Motivated, by Into Mischief and trained by Chad Brown won in his next start at Belmont Park as the odds on favorite with jockey Javier Castellano going 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt.
Post time for the 5th race is set for 3:13 pm.
