WISE DAN (Wiseman's Ferry), who is to race in the $1 million Breeders' Cup
Sprint (G1) at Churchill Downs on November 6, worked Tuesday for the first time
since he captured the Phoenix S. (G3) on October 8. With Jerry O'Dwyer aboard,
the three-year-old gelding was clocked in 1:00 3/5 for the five-furlong work
with a six-furlong out time of 1:14 2/5 over the main track at Keeneland.
"He did that real easy," said trainer Charlie Lopresti, who has four wins
with his five Keeneland starters through the first eight days of the fall
meeting. "I never work my horses real fast. I'm not a big believer in those fast
works anyway. As long as they come home good and finish up good that's all that
matters to me."
Lopresti said HERE COMES BEN (Street Cry [Ire]) is scheduled to work on
Thursday with regular exercise rider Enrique Pacheco aboard. The move will be
the third at Keeneland since the four-year-old Won the Forego S. (G1) at
Saratoga on September 4. Here Comes Ben is pointing toward the Breeders' Cup
Dirt Mile (G1).
