$1,000,000 Wood Memorial Recap – Irish War Cry earns Derby trip. Is it the right time to bet him?

Irish War Cry cruised home in the Wood Memorial. Many pundits thought it was the most impressive of the trio of Derby preps last Saturday. If you are looking to bet a Todd Pletcher horse that has already qualified for the Kentucky Derby field, I would be reluctant to do it this coming weekend. Once his horses have qualified, his eyes are set on one thing, roses. That does not bode well for MALAGACY in the Arkansas Derby. As far as Irish War Cry goes, he deserves a very long look on May 6th. He is one of those “every other race is a good effort” types. That is not enticing coming off the good effort he is in the Wood. Hey, maybe he is a good play in the Preakness
