In preparation for his comeback after recovering from colic surgery, Two-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan is based in Saratoga where he has been training for over a month.

His most recent work came on Aug. 24, when he worked a half-mile in :47.92 with regular exercise rider Damien Rock. Plans call for the 7-year-old son of Wiseman’s Ferry to run in Saratoga’s Bernard Baruch Handicap (gr. IIT) on Aug. 28, or the Woodbine Mile (Can-IT) on Sept. 14.

After his Aug. 24 work, Wise Dan grazed with handler Reeve McGaughey, nephew of Charlie and Amy LoPresti. Relaxed and looking well, Wise Dan perked up when he heard the camera and then went back to grazing the area outside his barn.

Elated that Wise Dan is so healthy!Ultimate race this year would be Wise Dan vs. Kingman...Dan might enjoy the challenge before dispatching this foe.

What is comforting is that Charlie LoPresti and Morton Fink are all about what is best for Wise Dan. Wherever they do run, if there is even a tiny issue, they will not let Dan run. But you have to admit, he looks fantastic.

Dan looks absolutely gorgeous.  If he runs as good as he looks, he's unbeatable.

Wise Dan has an absolutely wonderful expression, so kind with the wisdom of the ages. He is a flawless soul.  Thanks to Ms Eberhardt for her lovely photos.

Wise Dan has the most beautiful eyes. The only other horse that comes close is Chrome.

Great pictures of a truly great horse. A personal favorite.

Love 'em all

Great pictures!  We'll all be rooting for WD Saturday.  He's carrying 13 more pounds than the other 7-yr-old gelding in the race, but he can do it.  Cheers to Wise Dan who looks wonderful.

Thanks for the photo treat.

May he run well in the Bernard Baruch and come home safely. Wise Dan is an American treasure.

Thank you Anne, you have a very unique way with all horses. I don't think it is the click of the camera that interests them, it is your kind and gentle way with them. They know who cares. Trust me, they know.

Wise Dan, we are all pulling for you fella. You are looking major grand!

Yes he's a good looking horse but never stepped out of his domain of grass miling,Goldencents is stepping out of his domain to come and meet him,lets hope he don't end up back in the hospital.

Wise Dan is a class act and a beautiful guy.  His connections are also a class act and will let him direct them, thank you.
