Happy Am I splashed to a maiden win at Horseshoe Indianapolis on Thursday and scored the 64th victory for West Point Thoroughbreds in 2023, tying the stable’s record for a single year, from 2007.
The 3-year-old filly drew off late on a sloppy track with jockey Reylu Gutierrez in the irons for trainer Dallas Stewart.
