Runhappy set to parade

Runhappy, the champion sprinter of 2015, is scheduled to be paraded at Sam Houston Race Park on Friday night, the track announced through its simulcast feed. Runhappy is being freshened at a farm in Texas. He races for Houston residents Jim and Linda McIngvale.

Runhappy will parade after the second or third race in details still being worked out, according to Sam Houston spokeswoman Jamie Nielsen. Nielsen said there will be a brief photo op in the winner's circle. Runhappy will then be moved to an appropriate area for a "meet and greet" with fans at Sam Houston.

Runhappy won the Breeders' Cup Sprint in October and the Malibu in his most recent start Dec. 26. He is a son of Super Saver.
