Exfactor Fully Extended in Sugar Bowl

Exfactor wins the Bashford Manor at Churchill Downs (Eric Patterson/Eclipse Sportswire)
Stoneway Farm’s Exfactor returned from a layoff since winning Churchill’s Grade III Bashford Manor Stakes last July 2 to reach the winner’s circle once again in Saturday’s $60,000 Sugar Bowl Stakes – run as an overnight stakes this season.

 

Exfactor, trained by Bernie Flint, out-fought Willis Horton’s Laurie’s Rocket to pay $5 for his nose victory while touring the six furlongs in 1:11.78.

 

“I guess I didn’t waste $500 nominating him to the big races,” said Flint in the winner’s circle after the Sugar Bowl, referring to the Early Bird nomination fee this year’s $1 million Louisiana Derby on April 1. That $500 early bird nomination also encompasses nominations to the Grade III Lecomte Stakes Jan. 21 as well as the Grade II Risen Star Stakes Feb. 25.
