Wise Dan pre-entered in Breeders' Cup Mile; won't run in Classic
By Jay Privman
Wise Dan has been pre-entered in the Breeders' Cup Mile, and will not be pre-entered in any other BC race, owner Morton Fink said on Wednesday from his home in Chicago.
Horses can be pre-entered in more than one BC race on Monday, but Fink said there was no chance Wise Dan would be pre-entered in the Classic, let alone even be considered to run in that race.
"I sent in my entry slip three days ago, and just put down the Mile," Fink said. "That's the only one we're running in."
Both the Mile and the Classic are Nov. 3 at Santa Anita.
While I think that Wise Dan is surely the best Miler in the US it does worry me that Lopresti didnt want the 3 races in 7 weeks and was overruled by the owner. He wanted to train Wise Dan up to this race. Horses have been known to come up empty. Just look at Stacelita or Turbulent Descent last year. Or the host of other favorites that didn't win last year. It makes me quite squeamish at a short price.
Wise Dan eats up the turf--any horse that beats him must run 110 beyer
Wise Dan or Point of Entry for HOY if either wins their race. Wise Dan if they both win. More versatile ,more different tracks run at
I like Wise Dan but with no wins over 1 1/8 miles and no wins on real dirt, part of me hopes he doesn't get Horse of the Year.
I wonder if he would have gone for the classic had it been on pro-ride or at Churchill Downs.
I wish My Happy Face was running in one of the ladies races. I dig her.
the idea is to run local ( US ) horses against the best EUROS in the most possible BC races there are.....GAME ON DUDE has already proven his mettle on the CLASSIC so let the others try other BC RACES like WISE DAN in the MILE......and POINT OF ENTRY in the other BC GRASS race he is in....these are 3 singles for me.....WISE DAN regressing on BC DAY come on man !!! he may lose but that is not regression, he simply lost !!!
What ever happened to the turf races for Wise Dan? Just a few weeks ago, his connections were confident in either the Turf Classic or the Turf Mile, and now, there is a 180 degree shift that surprise the heck of me. I thought he belongs in either of the turf races, but appearantly the connections don't think so; and opted to go the easy route.
This has the potential to be the most anticipated race of the weekend if some good Euros come and Animal Kingdom makes the gate along with the outstanding Wise Dan, not to mention some hard-knocking local horses.
Team Valor, Barry Irwin and Graham Motion will air in this spot with Animal Kingdom. Wise Dan will regress off his huge recent efforts!!
