After winning a stakes race in Ireland, Laughing was imported to North America as a late 3-year-old. The mare took a few American starts to get into a groove but scored her first graded stakes victory on the continent when she won the Grade 3 Taylor Made Matchmaker Stakes in July of 2012 at Monmouth Park. While she hit the board in two more stakes that year, she proved that becoming a 5-year-old had turned her into a different horse.
Laughing made her first start in June, winning a Grade 3, one of four consecutive graded stakes races - including Grade 1 wins in the Diana Stakes and the Flower Bowl Invitational Stakes - she won in 2013. Her wins solidified the mare as one of the elite female performers on the grass in the U.S.
