Wood Memorial Picks to Monitor


Morning Line Odds: 7/5

Deterministic won the Gotham Stakes (Grade 3) his last time out with a 99 Speed Figure. He could be a contender to win the Kentucky Derby.

Tuscan Sky

Morning Line Odds: 4/1

Tuscan Sky has opened his career with two wins. He produced Speed Figures of 97 and 99 in those races.

Uncle Heavy

Morning Line Odds: 8/1

Uncle Heavy has won three of four career races, most recently winning the Withers Stakes (Grade 3). That last victory came at the same distance (1 1/8 miles) as the Wood Memorial.

El Grande O

Morning Line Odds: 8/1

El Grande O should be the pacesetter. While he hasn't won in 2024, he's placed second at the Withers Stakes (Grade 3) and third at the Gotham Stakes (Grade 3).
