LONDON (AP) — Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood might have a shot at winning the world's most grueling steeplechase for the first time with a not so wild horse.
British Grand National organizers say Wood's horse, Sandymount Duke, is among 112 entries that will be whittled down to 40 runners for the race on April 6.
Sandymount Duke has won 10 of 30 races and runs in the 71-year-old Wood's red and white silks. Wood bred the 10-year-old gelding, which is trained by Jessica Harrington in Ireland.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A spokesperson for Ronnie Wood says the Rolling Stones guitarist has had a lung lesion successfully removed and is expected to make a full recovery.
Wood, who turns 70 next week, says in a statement that he is grateful to doctors who found the lesion in its early stages.
He is not expected to require further treatment and the procedure will not affect the Stones' upcoming tour, which kicks off in Europe in September.
