The Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale is the country’s and arguably Europe’s ‘premier’ Breeze ups sale, having produced countless Group 1 winning horses over the years, including our two, quite recent purchases, Group 1 winners DONJUAN TRIUMPHANT (Richard Fahey) and VENTURA STORM (Richard Hannon). It’s a tried and tested venue for ourselves and international buyers alike.
Noble Mission, a full brother to Frankel, but a multiple Group 1 Winner in his own right, has made an excellent start to his career as a stallion, especially over the pond in the USA. Both in the breeding sheds and in the auction ring, over here, he’s understandably finding himself trumped by his more illustrious brother, but that’s not been the case in the USA, where Frankel’s legacy is not so prevalent. However, Noble Mission’s progeny stats are very impressive indeed having sired numerous horses rated as high as 115 and his top performer, the Grade1 winner CODE OF HONOUR, with a best RPR of 121.

This filly is impeccable bred on her dam’s side (her dam is by the stallion sensation War Front) with multiple Group winners, some household names being on her page, such as the stallion WAR COMMAND and NAVAL OFFICER. She could be a valuable mare for the breeding sheds herself, when her racing career is over.
See her breeze video in the gallery and her walk video here:
As you can detect and see from the photos of her breeze (see the gallery), she has a fabulous stride on her and her breeze was a deadeye gallop, straight down the middle of the track, ears pricked the whole way!
Marco did very well with our horses last year, giving us 6 winners from 4 horses and a 54% win and place strike rate so we are very excited about what 2022 holds!
Racing Update: She looked like being a superstar at one-point last Spring. We were heading for an Oaks Trial with her, but she picked up a rib injury. Out for quite a while thereafter and she came back on the AW over the Winter. All Winter, Marco hasn’t really been totally happy with her, however, she’s just started to come into herself now. She’s in much better shape, as the weather is getting warmer. It looks like Spring is her time of year. 1m2f is definitely her trip and she’s ready to win again. If she comes back to anything like her best, she’s very very well handicapped. She’ll retain paddock value, post racing career too. TIMEFORM RATED: 83 Her race entries/declarations will show on this page.
