Bob Baffert reports that Triple Crown hopeful THE FACTOR (War Front) is back on the track after missing three days with a foot bruise.
"He had a little setback," Santa Anita's leading trainer said.
The Factor opened his career with a fourth-place run over Hollywood Park's synthetic Cushion Track. He stepped up in a major way next out, though, to score by 8 1/4 lengths in his first try over Santa Anita's dirt track, setting a track record of 1:06.98 for six furlongs on December 26.
Baffert said the San Vicente S. (G2) at seven furlongs on February 20 was still a possibility for the three-year-old gray.
