Cup hopefuls work at Keeneland

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).
