The four year old gelding was a long way back in the middle stages of the race, but a calm ride from Jack Hill produced the unthinkable.

Hill waited patiently until the final 600 metres, when an opening presented for Happy As Hell.

Happy As Hell gained a dream run through the field and hit the line strongly to win in a close finish from Stratigraphy and Horsham owned Rainbow Storm.

Despite keeping connections on the edge of their seat, Karina O’Sullivan was pleased with the ride.

“It was a great ride from Jack,” O’Sullivan said.

“He left it to the last minute, but made up the ground and that is what matters.”

Rainbow Storm went into the race as the punters elect and was leading with 150 metres to travel, but could not hold off Happy As Hell.

Happy As Hell is a stable favourite in Stawell and rightly so after claiming back to back cups.

“He is a likeable horse, he has a great attitude for racing and he is big and strong,” O’Sullivan said.

The win was Happy As Hell’s second in a row, after he won in the Hamilton Cup the previous Sunday.

The Horsham Cup was a step up in distance from Hamilton and Happy As Hell will go further in the Ararat Gold Cup this Sunday over 2000 metres.

“The plan is to eventually see him run over 2200 metres at Ballarat,” O’Sullivan said.

“I think he will probably stretch out to 2500 metres, but it is a gradual thing. This is his third week back up and he is doing a good job.”

O’Sullivan stables have had a successful spring to date with both Happy As Hell and Bunchloch claiming two country cups.

Bunchloch ran in the Kyneton Cup on Wednesday and finished sixth.
