Olympic Glory: Will represent Hannon team in the Breeders' Cup Mile
Richard Hannon has elected to saddle QEII winner Olympic Glory rather than Toronado in the Breeders' Cup Mile
The Everleigh trainer was spoilt for choice in the American showpiece with his Group One pair, although Toronado had looked the more likely to travel.
However, assistant trainer Richard Hannon junior told the stable's website: "Toronado worked at Lingfield on Tuesday morning, but, having had a break since the wind operation that he had after York, he clearly needs a bit more time, so we will put him away for next season, when the Breeders' Cup will be his ultimate target.
"It was always going to be one or the other, but Olympic Glory has come out of last week's QEII victory at Ascot better than we could have hoped, so he will be our representative in the Mile.
"Sheikh Joaan (Al Thani) is keen to have runners at the meeting, and we will also be talking his Shamshon for the Juvenile Turf."
