Spanish Mission (Noble Mission {GB}), this year's G2 Yorkshire Cup winner and G1 Melbourne Cup third, has been sold to Australian interests and will remain Down Under with trainer Peter Moody. Formerly raced by Team Valor International and Gary Barber, the 5-year-old entire will now represent Brae Sokolski, Ozzie Kheir and Jonathan Rosham.

“Yesterday I finalised a deal to secure Spanish Mission to race in partnership with Ozzie Kheir and Jonathan Rosham,” said Sokolski in a release. “I would like to thank the former owners of Spanish Mission, Gary Barber and [Barry] Irwin, who specifically approached me and gave me the opportunity to purchase their wonderful horse and keep him on our shores. Spanish Mission is a truly world-class stayer and importantly still on an upward trajectory with so much more to come.”

Spanish Mission has traveled the globe to compete in the top staying contests and has also won the G2 Doncaster Cup and the G3 Bahrain Trophy S.
