most happy fella
A 1967 foal from the first crop of Meadow Skipper out of Laughing Girl, Most Happy Fella was bred by Norman Woolworth and David Johnston of Stoner Creek Stud in Kentucky. The Triple Crown winner of 1970, Most Happy Fella proved to be a star in the stud barn as well. Standing at Blue Chip Farms, Wallkill, New York, he became the top sire for all breeds in terms of money won by his progeny. At his passing in 1983, the figure stood in excess of $55 million which is still being added to. Among his offspring is the great filly Silk Stockings and Cam Fella, who was the Horse of the Year in 1982 and 1983. Most Happy Fella was buried at Blue Chip Farms after an accident ended his career.
