So You Think is likely to stay in training next year, according to Coolmore Australia’s racing manager Tom Magnier.
The Aidan O’Brien-trained five-year-old has won three Group Ones since his arrival from Australia, but could only finish fourth in Sunday’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
However, Ballydoyle’s giant entire still looks poised to remain in competitive action next season.
“The horse has shown no signs that he is ready to go to stud,” Magnier said.
“You can’t take anything away from the horse. In the closing stages he kept fighting. He fought on and on and on.
“We are disappointed he didn’t finish closer, but there is still plenty of horse to go on with.
“We think this horse can keep keep winning these Group One races.
“The trainer thinks there is a hell of a lot in the horse’s tank.
“Let’s get this season out of the way and I’d say we’d probably continue into next season.”
So You Think might also run again this term, with the Champion Stakes at Ascot on Saturday week still a live possibility.
Magnier told Sydney’s Sky Sports Radio: “That would be an option that would be seriously considered.”
