Fees Set for The Factor, Creator in Japan

Both stallions to stand at Shizunai Stallion Complex in Hokkaido in 2018.

The Japan Bloodhorse Breeders' Association recently announced its 2018 stud fees and will stand American sires The Factor  and Creator in 2018.

The two sires join JBBA's roster at Shizunai Stallion Complex in Hokkaido, where nine stallions including Johannesburg and Eskendereya will stand in 2018.

The Factor, on lease to JBBA for the 2018 Northern Hemisphere season, will stand for ¥2,000,000 (more than US$17,500). The son of War Front , who won five graded stakes including the Malibu and Pat O'Brien stakes (both G1), stood for $25,000 at Lane's End Farm in Kentucky and AU$11,000 at Newgate Farm in Australia in 2017.

Creator, winner of the 2016 Belmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets and Arkansas Derby (both G1), was imported to Japan prior to the 2017 breeding season, and will also stand for ¥2,000,000.

Johannesburg, who has been at JBBA since 2010 has two Japanese-bred graded stakes winners and will stand for ¥1,800,000 (about $16,000). Grade 1 winner Eskendereya who started his stud duty in Japan in 2016, stands for ¥1,500,000 ($13,158). 

Three-time grade 1 winner Aldebaran has stood in Japan since 2009 and is located at JBBA Aomori. His fee will be reduced from ¥300,000 in 2017 to ¥200,000 in 2018. 

Came Home, the multiple grade 1 winner who stood at JBBA Shizunai for ¥500,000 in 2017, will relocate to JBBA Kyushu for a fee of ¥200,000 in 2018.
