Trainer Aidan O'Brien has confirmed Tuesday remained in America after the Breeders' Cup ahead of a planned date with Triple Crown hero Justify in the breeding shed next year. Third in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and second in the Irish Guineas at the Curragh, the daughter of Galileo claimed Classic glory with a narrow defeat of Emily Upjohn at Epsom in June. She went on to finish fourth in the Irish Derby against the colts and chased home subsequent Arc winner Alpinista in August's Yorkshire Oaks. Tuesday made what was ultimately her final career outing in the Breeders' Cup Filly And Mare Turf at Keeneland earlier in the month - swooping late to claim victory under Ryan Moore.

O'Brien paid tribute to the top-class filly after her retirement.

"Obviously, we were delighted with what Tuesday achieved," said O'Brien.

"She had a great run in the Guineas, then won the Oaks and to finish off winning at the Breeders' Cup was incredible really."
