Has Wise Dan run outside of California? Even though he has an Illinois owner, I do not think there was any interest in running him in the Million last year.
He ran in California only one time in his life, the BC setting a track record. He ran 6 times at 5 different tracks and 4 different states winning all but 1 by a head. He has run 1 1/8 miles 4 times winning 3 and finishing 2nd by a head. He can get 1 1/4 easily.
