US Champ Working Brilliantly Ahead Of Fourstardave

Monday, 29th July 2013

US Horse Of The Year Wise Dan (Wiseman's Ferry-Lisa Danielle, by Wolf Power) is burning up the track ahead of his scheduled return in the Gr2 $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap at Saratoga on August 10, reports horseracingnation.com. The 6-time Gr1-winner, who is bidding for back-to-back Fourstardave wins, unleashed a brilliant 57:38 seconds five-furlong workout on Saturday morning in what is likely to be his final serious hit-out before his title defence. As always, trainer Charles LoPresti was in awe of his stable star. "I never in my life had a horse like this," remarked LoPresti. "People don't believe me when I tell them, but he's a freak of nature, this horse." Wise Dan, who has won 16 of his 23 outings for over US$4 million in stakes, will be striving to continue a 7-race winning streak which began with last year's Fourstardave and includes the 2012 Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile.
