Haut Brion Her Completes 2020 The Everest Race Field: Horses Confirmed

All 12 horses to line-up in the $15 million The Everest 2020 field this Saturday in Sydney are now locked in after Three Bridges confirmed Haut Brion Her would fill the final slot in the world’s richest turf race.

Chris Waller Racing announced the decision to sell the final slot in The Everest field to Victorian Stud on a one-year deal with Three Bridges Throughbreds, birth place of Haut Brion Her.

To be ridden by Brenton Avdulla in the 1200m feature at Royal Randwick this weekend, Sheraco Stakes winner Haut Brion Her is a $21 outsider in The Everest betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

She is out to atone for a mid-field finish in the Golden Pendant from a wide alley and gives last year’s The Everest winning trainer Waller, who stole the show in 2019 with then three-year-old Yes Yes Yes, two chances in the race this spring.

Waller’s other runner is one-time favourite Nature Strip, to be ridden by James McDonald, who ran fourth to his young stablemate in last year’s The Everest results.

“It’s incredibly exciting for the whole Waller Racing team to see two of our stable stars line-up as genuine chances in the 2020 Everest,” Waller told Racenet.

“Haut Brion Her has shown her brilliant speed this preparation with a superb win in the Sheraco Stakes and I know she is capable of giving this race a shake-up.

“Her work has been faultless the last two weeks which gives me great confidence that she will be primed to put in a big performance on Saturday.”

Nature Strip is out to $7 in betting after two disappointing runs this time in, the latest seeing him finish a flat fourth as the beaten odds-on favourite in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m).

Shock Premiere Stakes winner, Anthony Cummings’ fast-finishing mare Libertini, is after another win over the big guns and is also at current all-in The Everest odds of $7.

The latest markets are led by the consistent Les Bridge-trained grey Classique Legend ($4.40) running for Bon Ho.

Dual The Everest winning hoop on inaugural champion Redzel (2017, 2018), Kerrin McEvoy rides last year’s sixth placegetter whose latest runs include the Group 2 The Shorts victory first-up and last start second in the Premiere Stakes when two lengths off Libertini.

The other best in The Everest betting following closely at $4.80 is Gytrash, Gordon Richards’ Adelaide raider having been kept fresh since his impressive first-up Group 3 Concorde Stakes (1000m) win over Nature Strip when carrying 60kg.

The other standouts in what is shaping-up as a highly competitive fourth edition of the hugely popular sprint are David Jolly’s hulking South Australian star Behemoth and the Godolphin-raced Bivouac.

Behemoth chases a fourth straight win this prep having recently completed the Group 1 Memsie Stakes – Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes double over the 1400m at Caulfield and is down in distance for The Everest.

Bivouac for James Cummings has had one lead-up run when third first-up in The Shorts, the four-year-old Exceed And Excel stallion sure to improve going up in distance as he chases his first win since the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington back in March.

See below for the confirmed 2020 The Everest horses with the final field and barriers to be announced officially on Tuesday morning.
