Spanish Mission Information

I was keen on him running well in the race last year but connections decided to wait another 12 months, get his rating properly up, have that hardened experience against the big boys and I think it’s been the making of him. If he brings what he has produced to date in the UK down under, he’s hard to beat.

Yorkshire Cup (2787m), May 14 2021, York, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Lot of class/quality about this win. Had to be shoved along to get into his work later in the race but as the race went on, he got better and was dominant, beating a high class animal in Santiago, so the form is very strong.

Gold Cup (4014m), June 17 2021, Royal Ascot, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Mighty in defeat behind a world class stayer, Subjectivist. Loomed as some sort of threat at the top of the straight but the eventual winner stole a winning break and held a safe margin. Spanish Mission stayed on to run third and actually beat home Stradivarius.

Lonsdale Cup (3269m), August 20 2021, York, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

It’s in the mix for race of the year. Wonderful clash between two class stayers, and as champions do, they find a way to lift and that was the case for Stradivarius in an epic battle up the straight. Spanish Mission was all over a winner but the champ dug in when required.
