March 28th, 2014 is the title sponsor of this and next year's Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct. The Wood is a major Triple Crown prep race and is one of seven races worth 185 points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby Championship Series.

"We are proud to partner with NYRA to be the title sponsor of Wood Memorial," said Jeremy Clemons, Vice President of Marketing for  "The Wood Memorial has traditionally been one of the most influential prep races for the Kentucky Derby and as such we are excited to provide players from across the country an extra rooting interest through our "Wood Winback" promotion. players will get all of their win bets on the Wood Memorial refunded if the Wood winner goes on to win the 140th Kentucky Derby.  We look forward to our players cheering on the Wood Memorial winner in the Kentucky Derby."

In true fashion, we will have plenty of fun contests and promotions to go along with the sponsorship--both for our customers and those attending the Wood on April 5 at Aqueduct in New York City.

Already announced is the WOOD WINBACK, which would refunds all win wagers made via on the Wood if the Wood winner goes on to win the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands.
