George Bolton, Stonestreet and Fog City Stables announced today that multiple Grade 1 winner The Factor (War Front—Greyciousness, by Miswaki) will relocate to the Japan Bloodhorse Breeders' Association Farm in Japan for the 2018 breeding season on a one-year lease. The Lane's End stallion is a leading second-crop sire in North America, with $3,690,740 in cumulative earnings. He has sired seven black-type winners and 11 black-type horses, including G1 Chandelier Stakes winner Noted and Quoted.

The nine-year-old stallion is responsible for 60 six-digit yearling sales so far in his stud career with purchase prices of up to $750,000. The Factor ranks among the top third-crop North American yearling sires of 2017.

“The JBBA expressed an interest in standing The Factor on a one-year lease in 2018,” George Bolton said. “We are excited to offer The Factor's impressive bloodlines to Japan and we look forward to his return to Lane's End in 2019.”

    Japan will fall in love with him….make a good offer for him …. The Factor will move his tent to Japan for good and we’ll never see him again…’s what happened to my beloved Summer Bird….I never got to see him or say goodbye to him …. yeah, I’m bitter ….. but darn it …it still hurts that my precious Bird died in Japan …

      I so agree with you, sad to see The Factor go to Japan. I loved Summer Bird and so sorry he died so far away from his home.

        At least, they’re saying he’ll be back ….we can hold on to that ….
