Morton Fink's Wise Dan, taken much farther back than usual given a blistering early pace, circled rivals on the far turn and drew away late to win the $2 million Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) Nov. 2 at Santa Anita Park for the second year in a row. (VIDEO) The 6-year-old gelding by Wiseman's Ferry out of the Wolf Power mare Lisa Danielle won for the sixth time in seven starts this year. Wise Dan, the 2012 Horse of the Year, completed the mile in a sharp 1:32.47 on a course rated firm. Ridden by Jose Lezcano, who replaced the injured John Velazquez, for trainer Charles LoPresti, Wise Dan paid $3.60 to win and was met with a roar of applause when he returned to the winner's circle. Za Approval finished second, with Silentio third and Silver Max fourth. Wise Dan was bred in Kentucky by his owner.
