Successful Dan Works in the Fog

Multiple graded stakes winner Successful Dan went three furlongs through the fog on the main track Wednesday morning in a final work before Saturday's Grade 1 Woodward.

 

The older half-brother to reigning Horse of the Year Wise Dan, Successful Dan was credited with a breeze in 37.15 seconds, third-fastest of 11 horses at the distance.

 

"Nobody knows [the exact time] because the fog rolled in here," said trainer Charles LoPresti. "We do know he went the last eighth in 11 and change, so we're kind of guessing he went 36 [seconds]. They're going to put down 37, but nobody knows."

 

Later Wednesday morning, LoPresti schooled Successful Dan in the paddock. In his last start, before he closed to finish second in the Grade 1 Whitney, he tripped and fell at the gap where horses enter the main track from the paddock, suffering minor scrapes.

 

"I've tried to figure out why that happened and how it happened. I don't know," LoPresti said. "Something spooked him, because he's never been that kind of horse."
