The The Everest is the richest turf race in the world with $15 million in prize money now on offer in the restricted Royal Randwick event run annually on a Saturday in 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 $8 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 competes 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 VRC Sprint 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 VRC Sprint Classic in Melbourne next race.

Redzel successfully defended in title in 2018 to become the first back-to-back The Everest winner in the same way the mighty Archer won the opening two editions of the Melbourne Cup (1861-62).

Redzel attempted a three-peat but only managed to run eighth behind three-year-old Yes Yes Yes in the 2019 The Everest results that saw a new track record set by the young champion.

For the 2019 edition of The Everest the prize money was boosted to $14 million and another prize money increase in 2020 sees the event offer an unprecedented $15 million in stakes!

The race is now part of a wider The Everest Carnival that has a host of special condition races taking place across Sydney with over $46 million in prize money being awarded.

The Everest date has also been moved back and it now runs on the same day as the $5 million Caulfield Cup (2400m) in Melbourne.

The Everest Day also features another Special Condition feature race with the $1.3 million The Kosciuszko open only to NSW country-trained horses.

Each year The Everest results also determine the race name for the Winners Stakes, a million feature run at Rosehill on the same day as Melbourne’s VRC Derby.

The 2020 The Everest takes place at Randwick on Saturday October 17, 2020.
