European campaign planned for Spanish Mission

Spanish Mission looks set be campaigned back in Europe instead of return to America for the Breeders’ Cup.
The David Simcock-trained three-year-old listed a famous triumph at Belmont Park on Saturday night, being produced right online by Jamie Spencer to score with a nose.
Even more remarkable was that dropping his rein had hindered Spencer.
The Noble Mission colt is owned Team Valor and by Earle Mack, and while his Belmont victory made Spanish Mission automatic entrance to the Breeders’ Cup Turf, the latter’s Barry Irwin was fast to rule out that.
He told bloodhorse.com:”He is a good horse. I believe he’ll get better with age.
“When I bought him, the strategy was supposed to leave him in Europe this season and then bring him to America following year. Halfway through the season, I realised that this is a European horse and that I told my men,’He’s never coming home, but I’ll bring him’.
“We are looking at the Melbourne Cup (later on ) for this horse. Earle would rather win that race compared to anything, and I’d like to win it also.”
Spencer said of this stunning finish:”Moving into the last turn he had been giving me all he’d.
“I fell my right rein and even though I had been using the crop, when you drop your reins at a hurry, it typically signals into the horse that the race is finished.”
