He’s had a pretty good year. Is he coming back in 2020? I remember he went to Japan for 2019.

Well he just sired the G3 Cattleya Sho winner Dieu du Vin and the owner is interested in the Kentucky Derby, so I think he'll end up staying.

However, if Japan doesn't keep him, I think Australia would be the most likely candidate to pick him up, since I think he has like 2 or 3 G1 winners down there. Of course, he has G1 winners in North America and Europe as well, but he's not an unsound 3 starter, so.

I have been a fan of this horse ever since he won the 2013 Juddmonte International, and his close 3rd in the 2013 BC Classic proved that he was also excellent on the dirt.
He's a gorgeous, versatile horse, and I've hoped that he would be a worthy heir to the Danzig line. It would be a shame if he didn't return to the US; our loss, Japan's gain, I guess. :(

Seems like he’s been doing well everywhere, but it would be nice to see him back in North America.

Yep, he was a victim of the sales fetish in America. Doesn't really matter if they can run if you can't sale them stateside.

Will he be the first son of War Front to stand in Japan?

The Factor stood at JBBA in 2018 for a one-year lease.

He was sold to Japan when he moved there.
