THE EVEREST FUTURE MARKET


THE EVEREST

Billed as the world’s richest turf race, The Everest is currently worth $15 million in prizemoney and has exploded in popularity with racegoers since it was first introduced by Racing NSW in 2017, when it offered $10 million. In a new concept to Australian racing which mirrored the Pegasus World Cup in America, 12 slot holders were invited to pay a $600,000 annual entry fee to compete in The Everest, with each slotholder choosing a horse to represent them in the 1200m weight-for-age sprint contest. The Everest, which carries a first prize of $6.75 million, is run at Royal Randwick in late-October and is the feature race of the Sydney Spring Carnival.

FAST FACTS

Yes Yes Yes was the first (and so far only) colt to win The Everest when he stormed home under Glen Boss in 2019. The son of Rubick, who cost $200,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, holds the race record with a time of 1.07.32.

Two-time winner Redzel, who claimed the inaugural edition in 2017 and defended his title under Kerrin McEvoy 12 months later, retired with career winnings of $16,444,000. That puts him third in the list of all-time Australasian prizemoney earners behind the Chris Waller-trained pair Winx and Nature Strip, who won The Everest in 2021.

Redzel was owned by the successful Triple Crown Syndications and trained by the father-son team of Peter and Paul Snowden. The same combination race Mazu, who has been signed up to run in Arrowfield Stud’s slot in the 2022 and 2023 editions of The Everest.

After an early run of bigger-priced winners of The Everest, race favourites Classique Legend and Nature Strip took the title in 2020 and 2021 respectively.

The Everest trophy weighs 27kg and features 7,777 black diamonds.

With Sydney traditionally receiving significant rainfall during spring, track conditions can play an important role in determining the winner of The Everest with Redzel revelling in the heavy going in both 2017 and 2018. Betfair’s team of tipsters closely study the form of the 12 runners and monitor the track preparation and weather forecast when they bring you their Everest best bets for each edition of the world’s richest turf race. With wagering turnover on The Everest now second only to the Melbourne Cup, it pays to visit the Betfair Hub for The Everest betting tips and previews ahead of the big race.
