Two spots in the Kentucky Derby will be on the line when nine 3-year-olds leave the starting gate on Saturday in the 2021 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, N.Y. The Chad Brown-trained Risk Taking is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the Wood Memorial odds. Post time for the 1⅛-mile race is 5:58 p.m. ET.
Before making any 2021 Wood Memorial picks, you NEED to see how handicapping champion Jonathon Kinchen has broken down the race.
Kinchen is one of the nation's most successful and recognizable horseplayers. An analyst for Fox Sports' America's Day at the Races and co-host of the In the Money Players' Podcast, Kinchen won the National Horseplayers Championship Tour in 2015, a demanding, yearlong series of handicapping events across the country. That same year, he became the only player in history to have both of his entries qualify for the final table of the National Horseplayers Championship.
In addition, Kinchen has scored huge on some of racing's biggest days. In November, he finished second out of 418 contestants in the prestigious Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge, which earned him $215,000 in prize money. After factoring in his profit during the 14 Breeders' Cup races, he took home more than $366,000 on the day!
It's no fluke, either. At the 2015 Kentucky Derby, he cashed for $150,000 after nailing a Pick 6 and a Pick 3 that paid $50,000. And last month, he nailed a $100 exacta in the San Felipe Stakes for $320.
Anyone who has followed him is up BIG.
Now, Kinchen has handicapped the 2021 Wood Memorial field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
We can tell you Kinchen is completely fading Risk Taking, even though he is the 5-2 morning-line favorite! Kinchen will not have Risk Taking on any of his tickets.
However Kinchen is high on three horses, including a long shot whom Kinchen thinks "will be ignored" by the bettors! Kinchen is including these horses in his wagering, and so should you. You NEED to see Kinchen's analysis before making any picks of your own.
So who wins the 2021 Wood Memorial? And which long shot is a MUST-BACK? ... Join SportsLine now to get 2021 Wood Memorial picks and bets, all from an unmatched handicapping champion who won $366,000 in the Breeders' Cup and nailed the San Felipe Stakes last month!
