Successful Dan Breezes at Keeneland

Successful Dan holds off Warrior's Reward in the G3 Northern Dancer

Morton Fink’s Successful Dan, unraced since finishing second to eventual Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Fort Larned in the Prairie Meadows Cornhusker Handicap (G3) on June 30, continued preparation for a return to the races with a half-mile in :48.60 on the main track Tuesday morning. Keeneland clockers recorded fractions of :13, :24.60 and galloping out five furlongs in 1:01.20 and six furlongs in 1:14.60.

Trained by Charles LoPresti, Successful Dan is undefeated in four starts at Keeneland with his major victory coming in the 2010 Greenbrier Fayette Stakes (G2). The seven-year-old half-brother to 2012 Horse of the Year Wise Dan is a three-time graded stakes winner with his most recent victory coming in the Alysheba Stakes (G2) in track-record time last May at Churchill Downs.

Working on the turf for a likely engagement in the Shakertown Stakes(G3) on April 13 was Black Sheep Racing’s China, who covered five furlongs around the dogs in 1:03.40. Trained by John Good, China worked in company with Ptolemaic (GB).
