You might say trainer Charles Lopresti is hot right now. From a
16-horse stable that is based at Keeneland, Lopresti will be starting
two Breeders’ Cup horses Saturday, Nov. 6, a feat not lost on the New
“Everything is going good right now,” he said outside Barn 36 on the
Churchill Downs backside. “You pinch yourself wondering when it’s gonna
end, but we’ve got some really good horses right now, I have a great
crew, and it seems like everything is working. I hope it carries over.
I know it can’t go on forever, but I hope it doesn’t end here.”
Lopresti will saddle Wise Dan in the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I) and Here Comes Ben in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (gr. I). He is coming off a Keeneland meeting that defied logic. Lopresti won with six of his 10 starts in the recently concluded fall stand in Lexington.
