ARCADIA, California (AP) — Vino Rosso survived a stewards' inquiry to win the US$1 million Wood Memorial and earn 100 points toward qualifying for the Kentucky Derby.

Ridden by John Velazquez, Vino Rosso ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:49.79 at Aqueduct on Saturday for trainer Todd Pletcher.

Vino Rosso and Enticed hooked up at the top of the stretch and duelled until Vino Rosso pulled away nearing the finish.

It appeared that Vino Rosso came over and bumped Enticed along the rail hard twice in the stretch. That prompted the stewards' inquiry and an objection but after video review, there was no change to the order of finish.

Vino Rosso is fourth on the Derby leaderboard with 107 points. Enticed is fifth with 103.
