Toby's Corner - Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial (G1) [02:08]
Toby's Corner rallied from last to storm past a tiring Uncle Mo and outkick Arthur's Tale in the final jumps of Saturday's 87th edition of the Grade 1, $1 million Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial at Aqueduct Racetrack. The neck victory was the race's biggest upset since Secretariat finished third to Angle Light by four lengths in 1973.

As Uncle Mo began to tire, Toby's Corner moved up along with Arthur's Tale and surged to the front in the final yards to hit the wire in 1:49.93 for the 1 1/8 miles. Uncle Mo, the 2010 Eclipse winner as the nation's Top 2-Year-Old Male and the early favorite for the Kentucky Derby, finished third, another length back, as he suffered his first loss in five starts. "I can't say I'm shocked but I'm disappointed," said Todd Pletcher, who trains Uncle Mo for Mike Repole. "I was a little concerned turning for home at the three-sixteenths pole when he didn't really kick clear. I thought then that we were going to be in for a fight. You could see the last 50-60 yards he was tired." "He came a little flat ...
