Multiple Group 1 winner Noble Mission (Galileo) will stand the 2021 breeding season at Shizunai Stallion Station in Japan, according to a news release from the Japan Bloodhorse Breeders' Association.

A brother to champion Frankel, Noble Mission stood his first season at stud in 2015 at Lane's End Farm in Kentucky where his 2020 fee was advertised at US$20,000. On the racetrack he won nine times including the Champion Stakes (Gr 1, 1m2f), Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud (Gr 1, 2400m) and Tattersalls Gold Cup (Gr 1, 1m2f). He is out of Kind (Danehill) who in addition to producing the aforementioned Frankel has also produced Bullet Train (Sadler's Wells) and Joyeus (Oasis Dream). 

The son of Galileo (Sadler's Wells) has sired two stakes winners to date in his multiple Grade 1 winning son Code Of Honor and Group 2 winner Spanish Mission.
