Successful Dan Could Work for Foster Saturday

Mort Fink’s homebred Successful Dan, who is stabled at Keeneland for trainer Charlie LoPresti, could ship to Churchill Downs to work Saturday in preparation for the $500,000-added Stephen Foster Handicap (GI) on June 15.
 
“He hasn’t run since (winning) the Ben Ali and I’m thinking I may want to bring him over here and give him an easy five-eighths breeze,” LoPresti said. “I’m just thinking about it, but I think it would be smart.”
 
Should LoPresti decide to bring Successful Dan to Churchill Downs this weekend, he would likely bring him to Louisville on Friday night and breeze him Saturday morning.
 
“I’d breeze him Saturday and keep him here to school in the paddock that afternoon and then take him home,” LoPresti said.
 
Successful Dan most recently worked at Keeneland on May 25 and breezed six furlongs in 1:12. “He’s doing really, really well,” LoPresti said.”
 
LoPresti’s other stable star, defending Horse of the Year Wise Dan, will not take on his older half-brother in the Stephen Foster.
 
“We toyed with the idea, but if he runs anywhere (at the Spring Meet) he’ll run in the Firecracker.”

The $150,000-added Firecracker Handicap (GII) at one mile on the Matt Winn Turf Course will be run on June 29. Wise Dan won the Firecracker in 2011 in his first start on turf.
