The Everest 2021 Form Guide

The Everest is hard to assess because we never truly know who's running in the race until the slots are announced.

Redzel has won the first two races and his form would come through the TJ Smith Stakes during The Championships in the autumn.

Yes Yes Yes took the 2019 race.

Krrin McEvoy claimed his third Everest in four years aboard Classique Legend in 2020.

It’s a weight-for-age contest, but ironically the older horses are best suited given the race experience counts for plenty.

The Everest History

The Everest was first run and won in 2017 and has changed the Australian racing scene since. 

With $14 million on offer via buyers purchasing 12 slots in the race, The Everest is a one-of-a-kind race in Australia held at Randwick every October. 

The richest turf race in the world, The Everest spots are purchased for $600,000 and the owners get to choose their runner. 

The owner and trainer of that runner gets a significant cut if their horse is successful in the race. 

Both the 2017 and 2018 editions were won by star sprinter Redzel. The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained sprinter was one of the most popular sprinters in Australia and he took his career earnings through the roof with the two Everest victories.
