Qipco Champions Day 2014
Champions Day owes much to the presence of Frankel's Family and this year was no exception, this time it was the turn of his little brother, Noble Mission.
Trained by the late Sir Henry Cecil's widow, Noble Mission was largley not considered to be Group 1 class, but this season proved a different ball game altogther. He beat Magician at The Curragh at the start of the season which springboarded him into the top echelons of the game and come Ascot he proved he deserved to belong to his family.
With underfoot conditions to his liking he set out to make all of the running and proved impossible to pass. Even the multiple Group 1 winning star Al Kazeem could not deny him a poignant and famous victory. It was a battle royal for the last furlong and one befitting a "Champions' raceday.
