  • AndyScoggin · Wise Dan and Princess seem like locks with Palace Malice one Travers away to become a lock. · 249 days ago ·
  • rafirox · Matt Shifman, thanks for writing this. I think you got 3 out of the 5 correct. Princess of Sylmar and Wise Dan are practically locks, and Palace Malice is my pick for the 3yo champ. · 248 days ago ·

  • notobsessed · I'd give just about anything to see Wise Dan race on dirt again, but it looks like it will never happen...oh well, it is their horse to do with as they please... · 255 days ago ·
Despite a tumultuous leadup to the race itself, Successful Dan ran his eyeballs out as the stable second-string. A far from perfect trip proceeded a fast finishing second place in one of the best races in the nation this year. Now maybe Morton Fink and Wise Dan can win the Fourstardave with some pea...Read More

  • james.farrell.3760 · I'm glad Wise Dan didn't run in The Whitney,now I get to see the reigning Horse of the Year run in person this saturday up at Saratoga in the Fourstardave Handicap. · 256 days ago ·
  • myjumper21 · Exactly!what is wrong with you people????... leave the horse alone!!!!!!!! he needs to stay on what he's used to and knows and has consistency on. If anything try him over long distance turf please! not dirt! he hasn't ran in dirt in a whole year, plus he has only been on dirt a few times. If they wanted him to be on dirt they should have got him on dirt a loonnngg time ago.. but of course I'm happy they didn't, he's a fantastic turf horse · 256 days ago ·

  • jasen.mangrum · AmbitiousD, I'm not sure about Summer Front, but I know Silver Max is being pointed to the BC. I know it was 1 1/4, but he's not in the top 10 after that performance against straight 3 year old. Plus, if Obviously & Little Mike both show up for the BC mile, he'll be in for a long day. · 583 days ago ·
