A 20,000gns purchase by Gill Richardson on behalf of Jaber Abdullah, Factory Time was appropriately bred by Tally Ho Stud. He is a half-brother to Ambrose Princess, a winner under both codes, and out of the winning Mark Of Esteem mare Mark One.

Baltic King was one of the toughest recruits to the stallion ranks in 2008, retiring as the winner of eight of 49 starts. The son of Danetime enjoyed his finest hours when winning a pair of Listed sprint races although he also turned in a fine performance to win the 2006 handicap Wokingham Handicap.

Baltic King is standing the 2011 season at Tally Ho Stud for €3,000.
