Four of the record 50 European contenders in this year's Breeders' Cup World Championships will not be making return flights, and instead will look toward U.S.-based campaigns with new trainers.

Fourth-place finisher in the Juvenile Turf Sprint at Churchill Downs on Friday, Queen of Bermuda (Exceed and Excel) will be transferred to the barn of Graham Motion. The Group 3 winner had been conditioned by William Haggas.

The Mackem Bullet (Society Rock) was sixth in the Juvenile Fillies Turf for trainer Brian Ellison, and will now be trained by Wesley Ward.

Team Valor International and Gary Barber's The Black Album (Wootton Bassett), eighth in the Juvenile Turf, will be transferred to up-and-coming young trainer Rodolphe Brisset.

Christophe Clement will take over the conditioning of Princess Yaiza (Casamento), who finished ninth in the Filly & Mare Turf after being saddled by Gavin Cromwell.
