Let’s not forget that Wise Dan is the class of the field.
Yes, the one hole is not ideal.
But when you win 20 of 28 starts – YOU KNOW HOW TO WIN.
He has won several times from the same spot. He has his regular jock. He is 3 for 3 at Churchill, despite trouble and not ideal course conditions.
#1 Wise Dan - Top weight, 7 year old, two time Horse of The Year will seek to bring home a second Woodford Reserve win on the
undercard. THE HORSE TO BEAT. Derby
#2 Bright Thought – Grade 2 winner looks to be rounding back into form but is over matched in here.
#4 Admiral’s Kitten – A Maker-Ramsey-Kitten who has never won a stake but had a good effort in the Gr. 1 Maker’s Mark Asking a lot but could catch a piece.
#5 Kaigun – Lightly raced 4 year old has become a new horse on turf with improving numbers
#8 Finnegan’s Wake – Eligible for non winners of 3 has amassed a bankroll of almost half a million. Will be running off a layoff.
#10 Seek Again – Euro with a win in the Grade 1 Hollywood Derby. Classy sort with nice works coming in and good turf connections.
Here’s your trifecta - Wise Dan on top with Seek Again and Boisterous and maybe a little Kaigun thrown in to complete the superfecta.
Dan IS the Man and will prove it once again with another win in the Woodford Reserve.
Good luck if you are wagering and, as always, "fast & safe " to all our equine friends.
