TORONTO -- Wise Dan successfully defended his title Sunday in the $1 million Ricoh Woodbine Mile.

The 1-5 favorite romped to a comfortable 3½-length victory -- his ninth straight Graded Stakes win -- in the six-horse field with a course-record time of 1:31.75 on the firm turf.

Wise Dan, the reigning Horse of the Year and Breeders' Cup Mile champion, earned the $600,000 winner's share and a berth in the Breeders' Mile on Nov. 2 at Santa Anita. The six-year-old gelding became the first two-time Woodbine Mile winner, while trainer Charlie LoPresti earned his record-tying third straight victory in the event. Wise Dan paid $2.50, $2.10 and $2.10.

Za Approval was second and paid $3.50 and $2.20, while Trade Storm paid $2.60 to show.
