Smile Happy Gives McPeek Another Kentucky Jockey Club Win

The horse that brought Kenny McPeek to the winner’s circle for the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs was not the one that most fans would have expected. Instead of Tiz the Bomb, who scratched out of the G2 stakes earlier Saturday, it was Smile Happy, a son of Runhappy, who gave McPeek his third victory in the early prep race for the 2022 Kentucky Derby.

New York Yankees release outfielder Clint Frazier, infielder Rougned Odor

The 27-year-old Frazier was the fifth pick overall in the 2013 amateur draft by Cleveland and was a prized prospect when he was obtained by the Yankees in a July 2016 trade that sent reliever Andrew Miller to the Indians. Frazier made his major league debut in July 2017, but the outfielder never has had more than 246 plate appearances in a campaign. His 2018 season was wrecked when he collided with an outfield […]

New York Yankees designate Clint Frazier, Rougned Odor, Tyler Wade for assignment

Clint Frazier’s tenure with the Yankees might have ended after five unfulfilling campaigns when New York designated him for assignment Friday to open a roster spot for a prospect ahead of the winter meeting draft. Frazier can be claimed by another major league team off waivers. If he is not, he could be assigned outright to the minors, but he would have the right to reject the assignment and become a free agent because he has at least three years of major league service. Infielders Rougned Odor and Tyler Wade also were designated for assignment. Now 27, Frazier was the fifth pick overall in the 2013 […]
