Addeybb Is All Set for Day 2 of The Championships on April 11
TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Six-year-old Addeybb is ready for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes this weekend.
The second day of The Championships will take place at the Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday, April 11, according to the horse race details posted on Australian horse racing tips and news portal Justhorseracing.com.au.
Addeybb will begin as a leading hope in Sydney’s largest Group 1 horse race. He will compete for the $2-million cash prize in the 2,000-metre competition under jockey Tom Marquand.
The son of Pivotal and Bush Cat’s trainer is British Thoroughbred racehorse trainer William Haggas.
Furthermore, his home track is the Newmarket Racecourse in the United Kingdom. On Tuesday, the chestnut-coloured gelding wrapped up his preparation for the weekend match.
The Group 1 contender spent most of his time at the Canterbury Park Quarantine Centre this week.
Last month, Addeybb already bagged a win at Group 1 level when he was successful in preventing Verry Elleegant from grabbing the victory at the 2,000-metre Ranvet Stakes.
After that success, the United Kingdom-bred racehorse shared favouritism with Danon Premium.
Mitsumasa Nakauchida trained Danon Premium. The Japanese star galloper reportedly now holds a little advantage in betting over the British racehorse.
Based on the report by Australian horse betting news and information website Racenet, Addeybb is now $4.40, while Danon Premium is worth $3.90 with TAB.com.au.
These details are the figures recorded when the betting markets re-opened for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
Harry Eustace is a spokesperson for the stable of Haggas. He remarked that they feel pleased with how Addeybb had been performing.
Eustace pointed out that they could not wait for the weekend sporting event this Saturday.
Furthermore, he relayed that he is anticipating the sporting horse of the Haggas stable to head to a new stage with another achievement under his belt.
Eustace mentioned that the British racehorse had not been the sharpest mentally.
But he said that the sporting horse begins acting truly intelligent around the race track when he is bang-on.
Eustace cited that such action is what the Haggas-trained racehorse had performed since the run.
The Haggas stable representative shared that Addeybb had developed a great deal from being a young galloper.
He added that they are quite delighted on the present status of the United Kingdom-trained racehorse.
Also, Eustace affirmed that the second day of The Championships is a challenging competition.
Nevertheless, he relayed that they are thrilled for the forthcoming major event.
Meanwhile, the trainer of Addeybb is yet to decide regarding the next engagements of the British racehorse.
After Saturday’s much-awaited match, the sporting horse does not have any activities lined up for him as of the moment.
For the time being, the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic has halted racing in the United Kingdom.
Moreover, it has made it difficult for people to engage in international travels.
If the COVID-19 crisis carries on for a more extended period, horse racing analysts believe that it could mean that Addeybb would end up staying in Australia.
The Haggas-trained British sporting horse would possibly engage in racing competitions scheduled for the spring as well.
