His approach and philosophy for training and preparing horses for the sales ring and the track have helped Woods establish a reputation for having the horses' best interest in mind.
"He does an outstanding job with a horse's early preparation.
He brings a horse along at the proper pace."
- Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott
"You can't make a horse run any faster than it's capable of running. The horse either has the ability, or it doesn't. The challenge is to keep the horses sound while they are training. You're always trying to get a horse ready to perform to its maximum potential. The horse should still be able to perform at that level when it reaches the track," said Eddie.
