GEMOLOGIST POLISHES OFF WOOD
WinStar Farm's Gemologist
(Tiznow) held off Alpha
(Bernardini) to maintain his perfect record in the $1-million GI Resorts World Casino New York City Wood Memorial S. at Aqueduct yesterday afternoon. "That's a great win, he's a great horse," said Elliott Walden, president of WinStar. "This stamps him as a Derby prospect, which we're excited about. We needed the earnings today. More importantly, it puts him in our stallion barn, and that's what we look for is horses that we can bring home eventually. Winning a Grade 1 like the Wood Memorial, it's one the best races to win as a 3-year-old, so it's great that way as well." Saturday, Aqueduct
