=== Wise Dan continues to lead NTRA poll ===
 New  York, NY  (Sports Network) - Wise  Dan leads the way for a third straight
 week  atop the  NTRA National  Thoroughbred Poll.  The first  10 spots  in the
 voting are unchanged from a week ago.
 Wise  Dan, trained  by Charles Lopresti, received 20 first-place votes and 438
 points in week 34 of the poll. The 5-year-old gelding will make his next start
 in  the Breeders' Cup  Mile on Nov. 3. Lopresti will send his turf runner from
 Kentucky to California on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
 "I'm  just  going to piddle  with him next week  and keep him happy," Lopresti
 said  Saturday at  Keeneland. "He  spends a  lot of  time down  on the  little
 (training)  track  and we  mix it up.  He will train  here the Tuesday morning
 before he ships that day. He'll have a walk day Wednesday to get over the ship
 and then train Thursday and school in the paddock.
 "I  think I've  got him figured out and  less is more with him. I think he has
 gotten a lot more confident as he has gotten older and he likes the turf."
 Game  On  Dude, set for  the Breeders' Cup Classic,  picked up three top votes
 from last week's 12, but fell further behind Wise Dan with 404 points.
 Defending  Ladies'  Classic winner Royal Delta  holds on to third with two top
 votes  and 305 points.  The 4-year-old filly is followed by Point of Entry (2,
 289),  I'll Have Another  (8, 245), Mucho Macho Man (169), My Miss Aurelia (1,
 130), Flat Out (106), Fort Larned (106) and Groupie Doll (96).
