He returned from a 19-month hiatus to win an allowance with this course and distance Dec. 22. Backed as the 3-5 chalk here, Bind rated three wide in midpack and moved into contention on the turn. He took the lead from Hero of Order ( Sharp Humor) down the lane and held off that rival by a half-length. Sales history: $180,000 RNA yrl '09 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 5-3-2-0, $93,800.
