Wood Memorial Day at Aqueduct Racetrack on April 9th - $1,000,000 Purse

The $One Million Grade 1 Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial, scheduled for Saturday, April 9, serves as the final prep race on the NYRA circuit for the prestigious Triple Crown, comprising the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes.

Mentioned as a probable contender for the Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial is Queens native Mike Repole's undefeated Uncle Mo. The 3-year-old son of Indian Charlie won the 2010 Eclipse Award for Champion Two-Year-Old Male and is the current favorite for the Kentucky Derby.

The spectacular race card will also include The Carter (G1), The Bay Shore (G3), and The Comely (G1). NYRA will offer a $500,000 Guaranteed All Stakes Pick 4 on races 7 - 10.

All guests will receive a free commemorative Uncle Mo bracelet.
