Balding said: "Elm Park is currently recuperating at Longholes Stud but hopefully he will be back in the new year ready for a campaign next season.
"We've not discussed plan for him and I imagine I will know more near Christmas time. He had a tendon injury.
"It was not a severe one, but the owners decided to take a conservative approach as he is a high-class horse."
