Two-time defending Horse of the Year Wise Dan will make his return to the track as the 3-5 morning-line favorite in Saturday's Grade II, $250,000 Bernard Baruch Handicap at Saratoga Race Course in New York.
The six-time Eclipse Award winner drew post position No. 5 in a field of 11 in the 1 1/16-mile race on the turf for 3-year-olds and up.
Wise Dan, trained by Charlie LoPresti, is racing for the first time since undergoing emergency colic surgery on May 16.
