This Saturday is “Super Saturday,” as three Grade I races offering 170 Road-to-the-Kentucky-Derby points take place.

Aqueduct features the Wood Memorial, where Enticed, winner of the Gotham (G3) has been made the 6-5 morning line favorite; Keeneland, which opens on Friday, is the site of the Blue Grass Stakes (weather permitting), where last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champ Good Magic is expected to be favored; and Santa Anita Park showcases Justify, a Bob Baffert colt drawing rave reviews and Bolt D’Oro, a two-year-old sensation who was awarded the victory in the San Felipe (G2) after a bumping incident with McKinzie in the stretch.

Let’s take a closer look at the Wood. Below is a horse-by-horse look at the field, click here:
