Gambling911.com has your 2017 Blue Grass Stakes betting odds for Saturday.

This Kentucky Derby prep race is run on 1⅛ miles (9 Furlongs) of polytrack and features a $750,000 purse.

McCraken was the odds-on favorite to win at 7-5 odds, followed closely by Tapwrit (5-2) and Practical Joker (7-2).

McCraken, owned by Whitman Thoroughbreds, is unbeaten in four graded stakes.  He hasn’t run since February 11, missing his last scheduled start in the Tampa Bay Derby.

“I probably could have run him (in the Tampa Bay), but he’s taken care of me, so it was my turn to take care of him,” trainer Ian Wilkes  said. “I really feel now, he’s bigger, he’s stronger. He’s developed more. At the time, I didn’t like it, but it may have been a blessing for me.”

Field with post position and odds:

1-It’s Your Nickel (20-1)

2-McCraken (7-5)

3-J Boys Echo (4-1)

4-Tapwrit (5-2)

5-Wild Shot ( 15-1)

6-Irap ( 20-1)

7-Practical Joke (7-2)
