Farm shuttler The Factor (USA) added two impressive winners to his tally at
Keeneland in the US on Thursday with impressive victories for Bound for Nowhere
and Youngest Daughter.
Owned and trained by Wesley Ward, exciting three year-old colt Bound for
Nowhere was an easy debut winner at Turfway Park back in January.
He has obviously progressed well since then and looked super good when powering
clear to win this five and a half furlong turf allowance by four and a quarter
lengths at his second start.
A $310,000 Keeneland September purchase, Bound for Nowhere is a half-brother to
stakes-placed Brinkley and is bred to go quick as his dam Fancy Deed is a
half-sister to 2007 Champion US Sprinter Midnight Lute.
The Factor racked up a winning double later in the day when his three year-old
filly Youngest Daughter broke through for her first win following a string of
Trained by Victoria Oliver, she surged late to win the 1 and 1/16th
mile maiden on turf by a length and a quarter.
Youngest Daughter is a half-sister to stakes-winner Annulment from a
half-sister to Group I winner Centre Court.
Already the sire of a Group I winner in the US and three other stakes-winners, The
Factor returns to Newgate this spring at a fee of $11,000 and has his first
Australian runners in the new season.
