Mishriff Under Consideration For Breeders’ Cup Turf

Multi-surface star Mishriff is still in contention for the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Del Mar, trainer John Gosden told the Daily Racing Form on Monday.

The 4-year-old was most recently fourth behind Sealiway in the Group 1 QIPCO Champion Stakes at Ascot, beaten 3 1/4 lengths. Gosden indicated that the soft ground did not suit Mishriff on Saturday.

“He didn’t like it,” Gosden told DRF. “They got a little bit of rain that morning.”

Mishriff made a big splash on the global stage when he won the $20 million Saudi Cup on dirt in February. He returned a month later to win the G1 Sheema Classic at 1 1/2 miles on turf in Dubai, then in August captured the G1 Juddmonte International at 1 5/16 miles on turf at York.
