During her racing career, she was remarkably consistent wherever she raced, finishing 85% In-The-Money. I wrote of her back in March 2006,
Happy Ticket, a Louisiana-bred, had enjoyed an outstanding racing career in her home state, beating up on the competition. Fair Grounds, Delta Downs, Louisiana Downs - she was pretty much unbeatable. Eventually, she was sent out into the Great Big Wide Horse World, away from her Louisiana-bred competition, and raced against the likes of Madcap Escapade and Ashado. I will never forget last fall, when she chased down Ashado in the Beldame (gr. I), coming in second by a half-length at 10-1.
Condolences to owner-breeder, Stewart Madison; Happy Ticket was very special to racing.

Rest in peace, Happy Ticket.
