In a race heavily front loaded with early speed Wicked Strong, has it at the end when it counted most scoring a big upset 3 1/2 lengths victory in the $1,000,000, GI Twinspires.com Wood Memorial Stakes, at 1 1/8 mile, for 3yo’s over a fast Aqueduct main.
Back those 3 1/2 lengths was a very tired Samraat, 3rd went to Social Inclusion, back just a nose more with early front runner Schivarelli, holding on for the super spot back another 1 1/2 length further!
