Bind Romps in Fair Grounds Debut

Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider’s Bind proved no disappointment to the many who backed him during the third race on Saturday’s expanded Louisiana Derby Preview Day program, winning the event by 9 1/2-lengths while registering the fastest six-furlong time of 1:08.80 recorded this season at Fair Grounds.

 

“I’m not sure whether his next race will be here or in Kentucky,” trainer Al Stall Jr. said Sunday morning, “and as for (Adele Dilschneider’s) Apart (third in Saturday’s Mineshaft Handicap) we have no excuses. He just got outrun yesterday.”


DECISIVE MOMENT INJURED SLIGHTLY


Just for Fun Stable’s Decisive Moment, who set the pace in Saturday’s Grade II Risen Star Stakes before weakening to fifth at the wire, came out of the race with a slight soft tissue injury to the left hind, trainer Juan Arias said Sunday morning as he hosed down the sensitive area.

 

“It’s nothing very serious, we should be able to get it cleared up fairly quickly,” Arias said. “We’ll be taking him back to Florida in a couple of days.”

 

Later Sunday morning, Decisive Moment’s jockey Kerwin Clark described how the race was run. “He’s a better horse than the way he ran yesterday,” Clark said. “Things were going along fine but when the others started coming to him, he bobbled a little bit and after that things didn’t go quite as well for us. But he didn’t quit on me. He still only got beat five or six lengths.”
