Dual American Horse of the Year Wise Dan will seek a third Breeders' Cup Mile victory after a winning comeback.

The horse returned from colic surgery to triumph by a nose on his return in the Grade Two Bernard Baruch Handicap.

Wise Dan will now have one more run, in the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland on 4 October, before the Breeders' Cup meeting.

He will then attempt to emulate the great Golidikova by claiming a hat-trick at Santa Anita on 1 November.

Trainer Charles LoPresti said: "He's been through a lot. I knew he was training good and I knew he was going to run good.

"He showed why he is the two-times Horse of the Year. God willing, he comes back good. He'll be way tougher next time."
