The Equity Line check is being cashed and if I can get 2/5 on Wise Dan in this Sunday's Woodbine Mile, I am all in.

Win streak on the line

Short field of 6

Top of his game

Prep for BC

All adds up to a Bridge Jump "Safety" Play

Already bought tickets for Keeneland so I hope it is a paid workout and he goes to the Shadwell in 3 weeks like he did last  year.

WARNING!!


---> Prep for BC <---


Sunday's race is little more than a public workout for Wise Dan, and to win he will have to do it on his own: he won't be asked, and he won't be pushed. The BC is the Big Enchilada for Wise Dan...not Sunday's Woodbine Mile.

Meanwhile, this race means EVERYTHING to Excaper, who is defending his home course.

Wise Dan will probably win this race, but does that mean he's a good betting prospect...at 2/5on??

Hardly. Grab some popcorn and have a seat -- this is a "watchin' race", folks.

The Shadwell is still on the agenda.....The horse is apparently ripping down his stall and couldnt wait another 3 weeks to race......I doubt they would want to enter the BC off of 7 weeks off

At 20 cents a bet...is a free square really needed? And, do you really want to do the exact same thing the majority of the other P4 players will do?

Ask yourself, "If Wise Dan *doesn't* win, what percentage of P4 tickets will be knocked out?"   (I'd answer: 98%, easy.)

I'd recommend heavy on Wise Dan, and light on Excaper, Dimension, and Za Approval. Heck, *buy* the race on one ticket, and if something really stupid happens, you have a chance at a tremendous score without risking too much money on it.

Horsevoice makes a good point and good ticket play.  I like an all play in the Mile on one ticket just in case, but deep down I believe it is a throw away.  I saw Wise Dan in the Shadwell last year and was so impressed that I parlayed that day's play on him in the BC.  I will do a three race parlay with him starting Sunday as well.  Good Luck!

Yes I am, anything can happen.  Give me a full field, and some juicy prices and Ill take a shot.  He is a great horse, would've loved to see him run against Frankel.

I tried that last year.  It didn't work out so well for me.

Im still betting he is going in the Shadwell.....If they pass that race and he starts tearing down the barn (like he apparently was the past couple weeks) there really is nothing they can run him in.....I expect to see him in the Shadwell to take that edge off of him

This is the most versatile race horse I have ever seen. I think on his best day he can beat anything on the planet from 6 furlongs to 1 1/2 miles on any surface. He is truly a horse for the ages.

Probably because he's gelded.  If he were a colt, he would have been retired already.  We don't have a chance to see the best horses compete because the breeding industry is more lucrative than the actual racing.  I heard keeneland sales are up almost 25% over last year, I just don't get it.
