Two-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan has been given clearance to resume full training, according to a report Tuesday at Bloodhorse.com.
The 8-year-old gelding had been on an every-other-day schedule of jogging and galloping since May 26. Wise Dan has been sidelined since October, when a non-displaced fracture of his fetlock at the bottom of his right front cannon bone was discovered.
“We X-rayed him today and he looks really good,” LoPresti told the Blood-Horse. “He's getting a new pair of shoes as we speak. He has gone through jogging and galloping really well, he has responded really well, he's sound and happy. He'll get another set of X-rays to give us the all-clear before we breeze.”
LoPresti said that he had not decided whether to send Wise Dan to Saratoga in July or to keep him at Keeneland to prepare for a possible fall campaign.
