Multiple Grade I winner The Factor has been retired from racing and will enter stud at William S. Farish’s Lane’s End Farm for the 2013 breeding season. Raced by George Bolton and David Shimmon’s Fog City Stable, The Factor won six races, five of them graded, including the Grade I Malibu Stakes and Grade I Pat O’Brien Stakes.
A winner at ages two, three and four, the son of War Front out of the Miswaki mare Greyciousness, also won three Grade II events, including the Rebel Stakes last year and the Grade II San Carlos Stakes this year. His earnings are $922,180. He was awarded eight triple digit Beyer Speed Figures for his efforts.
“The Factor showed brilliant speed and exceptional scope and quality in his three seasons on the racetrack and Lane’s End is very pleased to stand this stunning horse whose pedigree will be of great interest to breeders,” said Will Farish.
The Factor will stand as the property of a syndicate and his initial stud fee will be $15,000.
