Oaklawn: Blind Luck, The Factor hit track


Blind Luck and The Factor both made favorable physical impressions Thursday morning at Oaklawn, when they took to the track for a little exercise following their flight from Southern California on Wednesday afternoon. The horses are in town for weekend stakes, with champion Blind Luck drawing post 7 in the Grade 3, $150,000 Azeri and The Factor to break from post 6 in the Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel.

Blind Luck came onto the track around 7:10 am. Central, and walked through the indoor paddock under regular exercise rider Archie Cross. She proceeded to jog a mile the wrong way. The Factor came out about an hour later to gallop. He will be making his first two-turn start in the Rebel.
