Trainer Bob Baffert tells the Blood-Horse a nuclear scan of The Factor revealed a slight hairline fracture of the hind ankle – probably suffered in the Arkansas Derby but undetected until this week.

Baffert said the colt should be ready for a late summer and fall campaign, with one target being the King's Bishop Stakes at Saratoga August 27.
