The Everest 2019

Saturday October 19, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Everest horses that ran well make a good VRC Sprint Classic tip in Melbourne later in the spring

The Everest is one of the newest horse races in Australia and also the richest turf race in the world with a total of $14 million in prize money, up from the original $10 million on offer in the inaugural edition. It was run for the first time in 2017 on Saturday October 14 at Royal Randwick Racecourse – won by Redzel who successfully defended his title in 2018 – and now competes for attention with the Melbourne horse races around this time.

A weight-for-age sprint contested over 1200m, The Everest is now the jewel of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival crown and is a Restricted race that does not hold black-type status. The $14 million prize pool sees it surpass the iconic Melbourne Cup  as the richest Australian horse race.

The Everest run at Royal Randwick is worth a staggering $14 million in prize money in 2019.

The Everest is unlike any other race contested down under and entry into The Everest field comes at a colossal cost of $600,000 to connections. Only the richest racing horse owners will be able to buy their way into the event and The Everest field has a capacity of 12 starters.

Open to both Australian-trained and international horses The Everest is expected to become one of the most recognised and revered racing events held anywhere in the world.

During the spring racing season in Australia lead-up races into The Everest include Randwick’s Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) in September and the weight-for-age Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at the same track. In 2017 the inaugural The Everest winner Redzel backed-up from a victory in The Shorts. Twelve months later Redzel improved on a lead-up fifth in the Premier Stakes to become a dual The Everest champion.

The Everest history was made in 2019 when the Chris Waller-trained three-year-old Yes Yes Yes beat the older horses in a new track record time.

After contesting The Everest race horses may continue onto the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival for Group 1 sprint targets including the Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley and the VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) run down the famous Flemington straight on the first Saturday of November during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Redzel (2017) became the first sprinter to do The Everest – Darley Classic interstate spring sprint double.

Each Sydney Spring Racing Carnival Racing NSW will also rename the $1 million Winners Stakes (1300m), held at Rosehill Gardens on The Golden Eagle Day in early November, in honour of The Everest winner. For the inaugural Winners Stakes race in 2019 the event will be known as The Redzel Stakes. The 2020 Winners Stakes will be run as the Yes Yes Yes Stakes.

The Everest Day also now features the addition of a $1.3 million Special Condition race – The Kosciuszko (1200m) – for NSW Country Trained Horses only.

The latest edition of The Everest ran on Saturday October 19, 2019 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained colt Yes Yes Yes.

The Everest Odds

The Everest betting markets are some most interesting of each spring racing season and odds on the world’s richest turf race are dominated by the star sprinters getting around at that time.

Some horses from international stables in The Everest betting markets may be unfamiliar to punters down under so doing the form on the race will be more crucial than ever. A key early lead-up race for contenders that impacts The Everest odds is the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) held at Randwick in mid-September, which produced the very first The Everest winner Redzel (1st in 2017). Horses that dominated the autumn carnival sprint races including the TJ Smith Stakes also feature highly in The Everest race odds in the spring.

Group 1 winning sprinters out of the autumn features earlier in the year including Randwick’s Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) dominate The Everest betting markets as the event is contested at the same track / distance as The Everest race during ‘The Championships’.

  • Career: 6: 3-1-2
  • Latest The Everest 2019 Odds: $11

Classique Legend is the lightly-raced youngster of The Everest horses in 2019 having had just six starts to date. His strike-rate is outstanding with three wins for the grey including the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) in April over The Everest track / distance. He was the second horse to secure a spot in The Everest field despite having only debuted in February.

GPI Racing sold their slot to Classique Legend’s Hong Kong-based owners. Obviously an acid test for the horse, but his wins to date have produced blistering fast sectionals suggesting he has the speed to challenge the better-rated hopefuls. Also talks of a $7.5 million The Golden Eagle start in the inaugural running of the four-year-olds’ feature this spring.

Classique Legend ran an eye-catching second first-up behind Pierata in the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) before his third when under a length off them in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) second-up over The Everest track / distance.

In Her Time represents Inglis – who had Santa Ana Lane in the race last year – and the classy mare is looking to improve on her disappointing mid-field seventh to Redzel from The Everest 2018. She has enjoyed a second career Group 1 win since in February’s Lightning Stakes at Flemington and has strong Randwick form that includes a TJ Smith third last autumn. Is she going as well this season? Time will tell.

The mare was accepted for a run in The Shorts but withdraw before jump due to the Heavy track. Goes into The Everest fresh, but has a strong first-up record (8:5-0-1) so is still worth consideration.

With Enticing Star heading to the breeding barn, Waller was left with a vacant slot that he subsequently filled with Yes Yes Yes.

Still taking a chance on one of his own in The Everest 2019, Waller announced three-year-old Rubick colt would run in the feature after a second to Bivouac in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

Last year the master horseman’s stable had the Darren Weir-trained Brave Smash in the mix. After his third in 2017 the galloper ran eighth in 2018. Waller will also be in 2019 The Everest contention as a trainer with star WA filly Arcadia Dream who joined his stables in June from Perth.

Breeding giant Coolmore pre-purchased their slot in the 12-horse field for the 2019 The Everest race but were one of the last to announce their representative, Irish racehorse Ten Sovereigns.

Coolmore were represented in last year’s event by the Aidan O’Brien-trained raider US Navy Flag who ran 10 lengths back ninth and O’Brien also prepares their 2019 hopeful. The entire has won four of his seven career starts to date including the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket.

The Northern Hemisphere three-year-old needs firm ground to be a winning chance and will likely bypass the race if the track is wet with Coolmore having been disappointed with US Navy Flag’s efforts last spring on Heavy going.

James Harron Bloodstock selected the Chris Waller-trained Nature Strip as their The Everest runner with the dual Group 1 winner a big hope at good odds in what will be a genuine sprint test.

The on-pace galloper will give the field something to chase as he did second-up winning Moonee Valley’s Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m). That was second-up off the fourth in the Concorde Stakes behind Redzel. Defeated a brilliant field in the Moir including Sunlight (3rd).

Vega Magic ran for Harron last year and finished dead last in the disappointing run of the race. This year will be Harron’s third The Everest appearance after his initial success in 2017 with inagural winner, Redzel.

A triple Group 1 champion, Alizee will be ridden in The Everest by Hugh Bowman (of Winx fame). She goes into the race fresh with her latest runs being back in August.

A link to our comprehensive The Everest 2019 Form Guide will be provided for punters below the week of the race.

The Everest Results

The very first edition of The Everest ran on Saturday October 14, 2017 at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney and the inaugural The Everest winner and race results were dominated by the Team Snowden-trained Redzel who went on to win Flemington’s Darley Classic next-up.

Redzel went on to repeat her stunning performance the very next year, winning The Everest in convincing fashion over an arguably much more talented field. The win saw Redzel’s career earnings  reach over $15 million across her four-year career.

Using The Everest results as a guide to later Melbourne Spring Carnival races is important for punters with the Darley Classic in November making a nice betting double with the lucrative Restricted race.
