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.”
