Wise Dan to miss Breeders’ Cup Mile title defend

Wise Dan - makes first out of the season with a win in GI Maker's 46 mile at Keeneland last out
Wise Dan – out for the season with an ankle fracture and will miss his try for a 3rd straight B/C Mile title this Nov. 1st!

The 2012 and 2013 H.O.Y in Wise Dan will miss his start in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Mile on Nov. 1st due to a non-displaced fracture at the bottom of the cannon bone of his right front fetlock, said long time trainer, Charlie LoPresti.

The fracture was discovered by trainer LoPresti who had noticed some swelling in his ankle and quickly decided to X-ray him to be sure everything was alright. The X-rays identified a non-displaced ‘half-moon shaped’ fracture of the bottom of the cannon bone in the (right front) fetlock.

There’s no word yet on what’s next for Wise Dan, as a decision on his future is still up in the air as of this posting!
