The Factor almost breaks another record, J P morning line favorite, Bind video, Uncle Mo and others work, Future Wager Pool #1 closes

The Factor leads the way in San Vicente. It looked as though Sway Away was gaining a length on him each stride// Southwest odds are set with J P’s Gusto the favorite at 9-5// Mucho Macho Man gets a 94 Beyer fig.  Owners report they turned down offers of up to 2.5 million// Speaking of Beyers, maiden winner Bind gets a 105 from yesterday on the same track. No word yet if they will point the colt towards the trail or not. I’ve posted a video link to his race below. Definitely worth a look// Derby future pool closes with ‘All Others’ at 2-1 and Mo at 7-2// Busy workout day. Another awesome work from Stay Thirsty who bested Mo again.

Quote from Dell Hancock on Bind “"We tried to sell him at the Keeneland sale, and I couldn't believe it when we didn't get the job done there. We hope we have some fun with him--we've sure been encouraged so far." Bind acted up a bit in the paddock, but Hancock wasn't worried. "He kind of got himself pumped up in the paddock, like he was saying, 'I'm the man.' He reminded me of Pulpit." (Thoroughbred Daily News)
