Tenth Victory for Smiling Tiger Mare

Auburn, WA (May 22, 2022) – Ima Happy Cat earned the tenth victory of her career with a frontrunning victory in the 3rd race at Emerald Downs going five and one-half furlongs over the fast track.

The 7-year-old daughter of Smiling Tiger broke on top from the outside post of the fast track allowance and quickly opened a clear lead. She lengthened the margin around the turn and into the stretch. A closer came calling but she held her safe to win by one length.

The durable multiple stakes winner has nineteen top three finishes from thirty-four starts and she has earned $318,239 for Sue and Tim Spooner. Bred by Dale Mahlum, she is out of the multiple stakes winning Wekiva Springs mare, Infernal McGoon. She is trained by Dan Markle.
