Wise Dan Back in Kentucky Already

Nov. 03, 2012 - Arcadia, California, U.S - Wise Dan ridden by John Velazquez and trained by Charles Lopresti, wins the Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA
The course record-setting victor in Saturday’s Mile, Wise Dan left Santa Anita early Sunday morning and arrived at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Ky., at 11:35 a.m. (ET).
 
“He’s back in his stall now,” Amy Lopresti reported from Barn 62 at Keeneland, located just across the road from Blue Grass Airport, an hour after Wise Dan landed.

“He was eager to get off the van and be back home.”
 
The trainer was on a later flight out of Los Angeles and due in Kentucky later Sunday.
 
The victory by Wise Dan, coupled with Groupie Doll’s victory in the Filly & Mare Sprint and Fort Larned in the Classic, capped a big day for a close-knit group of connections.
           
“We were all so happy for Buff (Bradley, trainer of Groupie Doll) and Ian (Wilkes, trainer of Fort Larned),” Amy Lopresti said. “They are all nice people. We are all blessed to have horses like that and it has been a pretty remarkable last three years for Charlie with horses like Wise Dan, Successful Dan and Turallure.”
           
Plans for Wise Dan include spending the winter at the Lopresti farm where Wise Dan has spent the winter the past two years before returning to the races the following April at Keeneland.
 
“He will probably get 45 to 60 days at the farm, but it is up to him,” Amy Lopresti said of Wise Dan. “Charlie won’t get in a big hurry with him because the goal is to have the horse at his best toward the mid- to late-summer and the fall for the big races.”
