The Wood Memorial is today at the Aqueduct in South Ozone Park, Queens. The biggest racing day of the year there...and a Holy Day of Obligation for some. In his last big prep for the Kentucky Derby, Secretariat came in third at the 1973 Wood Memorial, finishing behind stablemate Angle Light and Sham. Secretariat would never lose another race. He won the Triple Crown that year.
