Smile Happy Racing News

Two wins from his first two starts marked Smile Happy as a leading Kentucky Derby contender.

 

A dazzling winner on debut at Keeneland, the son of Runhappy sprinted hard from off the speed to take the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (G2) Nov. 27. One of several good two-year-olds in the Ken McPeek barn, Smile Happy is from the Pleasant Tap mare Pleasant Smile, who hails from the same female family as 2003 Kentucky Derby winner Funny Cide.
