Tye Angland won't contemplate another riding assignment at Royal Ascot just yet but is delighted Trapeze Artist will continue to race.
Angland joined trainer Gerald Ryan in expressing his happiness when it was confirmed the triple Group One-winning colt would not head to stud until 2019.
Trapeze Artist's owner Bert Vieira has opted to race Trapeze Artist as a four-year-old rather than accept offers of more than A$40 million to retire the in-form sprinter.
The second edition of The Everest is now a priority in October while a trip to Hong Kong in December and Royal Ascot next year is also on the agenda.
Angland guided Trapeze Artist to his maiden Group One victory in the Golden Rose last spring and also saluted on the three-year-old in the TJ Smith Stakes and Saturday's All Aged Stakes.
"Obviously for me, I wanted him to stick on and run," Angland said.
"It's just good to see a three-year-old colt stick on and have a crack. A lot of people would have sold him on."
Angland suspected he was on something special when Trapeze Artist claimed the Golden Rose by 4 lengths.
Trapeze Artist then headed to Flemington where he was unplaced in the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes last November.
Angland returned for the TJ Smith Stakes, and a memorable triumph over inaugural Everest winner Redzel.
The 28-year-old is excited about the prospect of continuing his association with Trapeze Artist in the Everest for slot holder Aquis Farm.
