Wise Dan Stretches Legs at Keeneland

Reigning Horse of the Year Wise Dan put in a strong gallop early Saturday morning on the main track as the Keeneland phase of his preparations for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) began to wind down.

With regular exercise rider Damien Rock up, Wise Dan came on the track shortly before 6:30 on the chilly morning, stood by the finish for about five minutes and then galloped 1½ miles.

“I did not put the watch on him until the eighth pole and I got him in :11 and change to the wire and then another :11 and change to an eighth after the wire,” trainer Charlie LoPresti said. “That was just what I wanted. Damien had him well out in the middle of the track and I told him to ease him down toward the rail at the three-eighths pole and let him run through the lane.”

Owned by Morton Fink, Wise Dan is scheduled to ship to Santa Anita on Tuesday.

Second in the off-the-turf Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) on Oct. 5, Wise Dan returned to the work tab last Saturday with a half-mile work in :47.40.

“We are doing just what we did last year here,” LoPresti said of Breeders’ Cup preparations. “He couldn’t be doing any better.”

I watched a BC preview show on Youtube by Sky Sports. They REALLY respect Wise Dan. They were discussing his Timeform rating and had nothing but praise for him.
