The Everest News
The The Everest is the richest turf race in the world with $13 million in prize money on offer, up from $10 million, 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 and the event proved a huge success.
The Everest is now Australia’s richest race surpassing the Group 1 $6.2 million 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 now compete with the Melbourne sprint races running around the same time of the season including Moonee Valley’s Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) and serves 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 Everest ran for the first time in 2017 and was won by Redzel who went on to win the Darley Classic in Melbourne next race.
The 2018 The Everest will take place at Randwick on Saturday October 13, 2018.
