Charlie Lopresti, trainer of exciting Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) winner Wise Dan, will be the next guest on Talkin' Horses with The Blood-Horse live podcast at 2 p.m. EST, Tuesday, Nov. 20. Lopresti will discuss his Breeders' Cup run, accomplished in course-record time over 2011 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Animal Kingdom.
Lopresti is based year-round at Keeneland and operates the 200-acre Forest Lane Farm near Lexington along with his wife, Amy. The couple, who have a solid reputation for breaking and training of yearlings before they go to the track, met when they both worked at Domino Stud, where Lopresti worked under top horseman Ted Carr.
The trainer also worked with Carr at Allen Paulson's Brookside Farm and was trainer for Calumet Farm for about six years when it was owned by the de Kwiatkowski family.
