Although a daughter of the eminent broodmare sire Miswaki (1978 Mr Prospector x Hopespringseternal, by Buckpasser), Greyciousness was a pretty middling sort of producer.

To the cover of important sires like Seattle Slew and Kris S, she had produced winners but nothing important.

But the potential gelled when the mare was mated to first-crop sire War Front, a larger and very powerful version of his famous sire Danzig. The result was The Factor, now a winner in his last three starts and one of the favorites for the Kentucky Derby after a powerful victory in the G2 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn on Saturday.
