Best Blue Grass Stakes Bets

Smile Happy (9-5) and Volcanic (20/1)

Smile Happy has won 2-of-3 starts and finished second off a layoff as the favorite in the Risen Star Stakes behind an expected Kentucky Derby leading favorite Epicenter. Smile Happy is an off the pace runner who won the Grade 2 last Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes last November, which turned out to be a key race with multiple runners coming back to win their subsequent start). He's already run this 9 furlong distance in the Risen Star, and finished just in front of fast-closing Zandon. He should move forward again in his form cycle and his morning works leading up to this major Kentucky Derby prep race have been outstanding.

Top value horse to include in exacta, trifecta and superfecta wagering is Volcanic, who according to FanDuel Racing showed improved speed and balance when finishing third in the Sam F. Davis Stakes in February at half the price. Volcanic is very capable of hitting the board and outrunning his 20/1 odds.

Best Bets: Smile Happy (5/2) and Volcanic (20/1)
