Baffert: Del Mar instead of Saratoga for The Factor

There won't be a showdown between Uncle Mo and The Factor in this weekend's King's Bishop Stakes at Saratoga.  While Uncle Mo is set for his comeback in the King's Bishop, The Factor will make his first start since April in Sunday's Pat O'Brien Stakes at Del Mar, trainer Bob Baffert announced.   Like the King's Bishiop, the Pat O'Brien is run at seven furlongs.

Both races could be intriguing battles with Smiling Tiger set for a clash with the Factor in the Pat O'Brien and Flashpoint taking on Uncle Mo in the King's Bishop.
