The 8-year-old Wiseman's Ferry gelding went five furlongs in 1:00 flat Sept. 1 on trainer Charlie LoPresti's watch, and galloped out six furlongs in 1:12 in final serious move for the Sept. 13 Ricoh Woodbine Mile (Can-IT).
Wise Dan was bright-eyed and bushy tailed the morning of Aug. 25, powering his way through a five-furlong bullet in :59 flat on the dirt at Keeneland.
Charlie LoPresti said the two-time Horse of the Year moved closer to a likely start in the Sept. 13 Ricoh Woodbine Mile (Can-IT) with his third straight breeze on dirt.
Charlie LoPresti liked what he saw in a five-furlong workout by Wise Dan Aug. 2 on the Keeneland main track, and the Kentucky-based trainer is pointing the two-time Horse of the Year toward an early September return.
