UK Based trainer William Haggas has confirmed that two time Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Addeybb won’t be heading back down under in the Autumn to try and achieve a hat trick of wins in the Sydney Group 1 contest

Addeybb set to miss the Autumn Carnival

Addeybb has struggled in his most recent preparation and an ongoing hock infection has heavily affected his campaign and prompted Haggas to rule out another trip to Sydney for the Championships in April.

Trainer Haggas was clear that the horse's health and wellbeing were the foremost priority and that he would not risk sending the gelding down under to compete in a third Queen Elizabeth Stakes if it put him at risk.

“The horse has a hock infection that flared about two weeks ago,’’ Haggas told News Corp.

“We couldn’t get it under control and he needed treatment. He only just came back into my stables on Monday but we wouldn’t even entertain the thought of trying to get him ready for Sydney.

“At this time of year, he needs not to be starting his preparation, he needs to be virtually ready to go now.

“I wouldn’t even take the risk to try and rush his preparation for Sydney so he won’t be going next year.’’

Addeybb successfully converted the Queen Elizabeth - Ranvet Group 1 double in 2020 and was expected to be right in the mix again in 2022 with him currently sat alongside Godolphin trained Anamoe at $11 for a third consecutive QEII.

Haggas did have a positive outlook on the Autumn Carnival though suggesting he had several other runners who may be in contention.

“We have some nice horses that we could aim at Sydney,’’ Haggas said. “I would like to go there myself and see your carnival.’’
