Bourbonic earns 100 points toward the Kentucky Derby.
OZONE PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Long shot Bourbonic stormed from the rear entering the stretch to edge Dynamic One by a head to win the $750,000 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct and earn 100 points toward the Kentucky Derby.
The colt trained by Todd Pletcher entered the nine-horse Grade 2 field as the most experienced but was making his stakes debut. He was given 72-1 odds.
Bourbonic started from the No. 3 post and trailed the field entering the final turn before charging forward at the top of the stretch on the outside and past multiple horses before catching Dynamic One and nipping him at the wire.
