From DRF, sad to report that Successful Dan has been retired, the 8yo bro of wise Dan. Oft-injured gelding was less than $2k shy of $1M in earnings.

On March 1, Successful Dan worked 4F in 48 flat (4/14) at Keeneland.
Do we know if this one is coming back this year? I know he's taking the winter off as per usual with Wise Dan, and he still seems to be pretty sharp with some nice place/shows last fall. He's about $2,000 from breaking $1,000,000 in earnings.

  • cedar · Thanks Sullivan, and yeah I thought he looked great at Saratoga. I thought his Whitney was a very nice performance considering how well he closed on a very talented Cross Trafficc. Hope to see him win at Keeneland again too. · 342 days ago

Per DRF, Successful Dan is going to skip the BC Classic and point to the Fayette at Keeneland on Oct 26.
On August 28, Successful Dan worked 3F in 37:15 (3/11) at Saratoga.
On August 13, Successful Dan breezed 4F in 49:73 (10/23) at Saratoga.
12-1 on the morning line in the Whitney. Surprising, considering Alpha is 10-1
On July 2, Successful Dan breezed 4F in 48 flat (3/12) at Keeneland.
Trainer Charlie LoPresti said Successful Dan likely will have his final work in preparation for the Stephen Foster Handicap Presented by Abu Dhabi (GI) on Saturday at Keeneland. “I’ll breeze him at Keeneland, probably on Saturday, and then I might bring him over to Churchill a couple of days before the race to gallop him over the track and paddock school him.”

Trainer Charlie LoPresti said depending on the weather he may ship Successful Dan to Churchill Downs from Keeneland on Saturday morning to breeze in prep for the Stephen Foster Handicap (GI). Should Successful Dan make the trip to Louisville, LoPresti said he would breeze after the morning renovation break.
On May 25, Successful Dan worked 6F in 1.12 flat (1/1) at Keeneland.
On May 18, Successful Dan worked 5F in 1.02 flat (18/30) at Keeneland.
I know it would never happen but I'd love to see the Dan's face off.
AM I crazy or did this horse get more hype than wise Dan before he was injured ? (I know this sounds bad, but I kinda just lumped them together, when they were both running)
Nice return to the winners circle
On March 2, Successful Dan breezed 4F in 52 flat (27/31) at Keeneland.
Any news on Successful Dan? He has so much up-side, he could be a top older male next year.
  • rafirox · I remember that he got injured. I hope he comes back soon, because I agree, he could be a really nice handicap horse next year. · 748 days ago
Successful Dan won the Clark but got DQ'd.
