The ruling Makhtoum family of Dubai, personified by Sheikh Mohammad and his brother, Sheikh Hamdan, with no cash flow issues, clearly saw opportunity, and spent big money on the top yearlings of Book One.

Stud Notes: Noble Mission’s Travers Winner

At first, it seemed that Noble Mission’s sole claim to fame was being the great champion Frankel’s full brother. Having run only on grass in Europe, the Group One winning millionaire seemed an odd choice for Lane’s End in Versailles, Kentucky, to import to add to its stallion roster in 2015.
