Factum, a half-brother to leading commercial sire War Front, will relocate to Poplar Creek Horse Center in Bethel, Ohio for the 2018 breeding season for a private fee.

The 9-year-old Storm Cat horse last stood publicly at Stonehedge Farm South in Williston, Fla.

Factum has sired three crops of racing age, with 28 winners and combined progeny earnings of $750,960. His runners are led by the stakes-placed Brother Fred.

Bred in Kentucky by Joseph Allen, Factum is out of the Grade 1-placed stakes-winning Rubiano mare Starry Dreamer, whose seven foals to race are all winners, including Grade 2 winners War Front and Teammate, Grade 3 winner Ecclesiastic, Grade 3-placed stakes winner Riviera Cocktail, and Grade 2-placed Jay Gatsby.

Factum won one of nine starts during his racing career in the U.S., England, and Ireland, earning $23,791.
