Redzel Is The 2017 The Everest Winner

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Redzel has made history winning The Everest 2017 and the $5.8 million in prize money for first in what is now the richest turf race in the world.

The The Everest is the new richest turf race in the world with $10 million in prize money on offer in the restricted Royal Randwick event run annually on the second Saturday of October as the new highlight of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Racing NSW announced the inaugural edition of The Everest would take place in 2017 as Sydney look to compete for the racing community and punters’ attention with the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The Everest is now Australia’s richest race surpassing the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) held on the first Tuesday of November at Flemington.

Contested over 1200m The Everest race is a weight-for-age sprint showdown open to local and international connections who “buy” their way into the race paying a $600,000 entry fee to have a runner in The Everest field.

The incredible The Everest prize money on offer is funded from this hefty entry fee as well as other event-generated events.

The Everest will compete with the Melbourne sprint races running around the same time of the season including Moonee Valley’s Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) and will serve as a gun lead-up to Flemington’s Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) held on the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival in November.

The 2017 The Everest ran for the first time on Saturday October 14, 2017 and was won by Redzel.

2017 The Everest Tips

  • 1st: #1 Chautauqua
  • 2nd: #10 She Will Reign
  • 3rd: #9 English

Read our full The Everest 2017 Betting Tips, the team tipping the Team Hawkes-trained champion sprinter CHAUTAUQUA to flash home in a reproduction of his record third TJ Smith Stakes win at the track / distance from the autumn. SHE WILL REIGN is no longer holding top spot in betting making the freakish Gary Portelli-trained filly, last start winner of the Moir Stakes, a huge danger on the lightweight. ENGLISH is at a good price for a place, longer because of the outside alley, but very good second-up when making up ground to run second in the Premiere Stakes.
