Wise Dan wasn't hard used by Velazquez in Bernard Baruch win


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -  Wise Dan thrust his head out of his stall, looking around for his feed tub shortly before 10 a.m. on Sunday, acting bright and happy. He did not look like a horse who, less than 24 hours earlier, had carried 127 pounds to a gut-wrenching and near record-setting victory coming off a four-month layoff in the Grade 2 Bernard Baruch Handicap.
