Spectacular Woodbine Mile Bullet for Wise Dan

Wise Dan and jockey John Velazquez win the Grade 2, $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap at Saratoga Race Course.

Wise Dan, winner of the Grade 2 Fourstardave Handicap on August 11, continued to hold his sharp form, turning in a sensational 45.89-second four-furlong turf work this morning on the Oklahoma course. The work was the best of 45 at the distance, and trainer Charles Lopresti had Wise Dan going five furlongs in :56 3/5 and galloping out six furlongs in 1:10.

 

“I was looking for a 48 [second work], in hand,” said Lopresti, who is pointing Wise Dan to the Grade 1, $1 million Woodbine Mile on September 23. “He’s just a freak of nature. You never want a horse to go that fast for his first work [after a race], but if you don’t have a watch on him, you don’t know. He’s just galloping.”
