How to bet on the Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct 2021

Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct 2021
Date:
Sun 4th April 2021
Location:
Aqueduct Racecourse

On a huge day of action at Aqueduct in early April every year, the Wood Memorial Stakes is staged and as well as being a huge event in its own right, it acts as one of the biggest and best trial races for the Kentucky Derby alongside such events as the Santa Anita Derby, Arkansas Derby and Florida Derby.

Run for $1million and given Grade II status, though often as good as any Grade I, the Wood Memorial is for three-year-old male horses only who are on the Triple Crown trail, running over a trip of one mile and one furlong on the dirt surface.

Given how changeable grading is in the States this race could go back to the top-level, having been a Grade I race between 1974 and 1994 then again from 2002 to 2016.

Past winners of the Wood Memorial include Triple Crown winner Gallant Fox, Native Dancer, Gulch, Fusaichi Pegasus, Tapit, Frosted and Breeders’ Cup Classic hero Vino Rosso.
