Wood Memorial Stakes 2012 Odds: Gemologist, Alpha The Favorites

According to Horse Racing Nation, Gemologist (8-5) and Alpha (5-2) remain the favorites among the eight entrants to win Saturday's 2012 Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack in Jamaica, N.Y.

Jeff Frank of The Sports Network is concerned about Alpha's two-month layoff:

Another colt that needs to hit the board is Alpha. The son of Bernardini hasn't raced since winning the Withers Stakes on Feb. 4, but he will be the second choice in the wagering behind Gemologist. One thought to keep in mind is the fact he has already won off a two-month layoff as well as won his initial start as a 2-year-old by six lengths at 6-1 odds.
