Addeybb is set to stay in Australia after Saturday's Queen Elizabeth Stakes before returning for some big autumn European races.
Addeybb is one of the leading fancies for Saturday's race at Randwick in Sydney after landing the Group One Ranvet Stakes on his Australian debut last month.
The William Haggas-trained six-year-old, who lost by just three-quarters of a length to Magical in the Champion Stakes at Ascot last October, was due to have a break after Randwick anyway and Haggas' assistant, Harry Eustace, says the coronavirus pandemic means he could stay Down Under for a spell before returning to Europe for some big races later in the year.
He told www.racing.com: "I would imagine Addeybb, he (Haggas) would like to get him back under his umbrella and his watchful eye.
"He's a Group One animal and he'd like to have him back with him and he's got good autumn goals at home potentially.
"We've got a couple of options. At the moment, our understanding is there aren't horse flights booked at the moment, which means that they could have their holidays here.
"They planned to have their holidays after this regardless, either here or home."
