Both as selectors and trainer respectively, Paul and Mike are unable to split who they believe are the best two horses through their hands from Happyanunoit or Xcellent but one thing's for sure - the former was awarded the "first freak I've trained" award from Mike very early in her illustrious international career, in fact before she'd raced. Mike made that assertion straight after Happyanunoit's first 200m gallop as a 2yo at Matamata, a huge call that came to fruition as the daughter of Yachtie became 1997-98 champion Australasian 2yo filly before bringing her Group 1 tally to four with three at the highest level in North America.

Born the same year as champion mare Sunline, Happyanunoit was twice rated higher than that great mare on the International Classifications for older mares.

At Karaka in 2016, we came across "Happy's" grandson by Cox Plate winner Ocean Park and saw so many similarities to his "Nana" that we simply had to buy him, the same colour, size and shape with the influence of Zephyr Bay shining through, coupled with the blood of Roberto. Lightning can strike twice!
