2017 The Everest

The Everest set out to lure the world's best sprinters and although it failed to attract many internationals in it's first year an increase in prize money is sure to attract many star runners in the future.

Off the track the Randwick race day attracts huge crowds and hosts a number of marquees that attract many of the biggest celebrities from Australia and abroad.

The Everest History

The first The Everest was run in 2017 with the ATC launching the race with a whopping $10,000,000 prize pool for those contesting the race.

Unlike most races, The Everest has 12 available slots that can be bought for a set fee. The owners of these slots get to decide which horse will run in their slot.

The first running of The Everest took place on the 14th October, 2017 and it was won by Redzel.

The race caused quite a stir in the industry, particularly because it's held on one of the Melbourne Spring Carnival's main race day, Caulfield Guineas day.

The Everest Betting

Given the quality of the field it's not surprising to see The Everest attract plenty of money from punters across the globe.

It's not uncommon to see bets worth tens of thousands placed on single runners in The Everest, giving punters the chance to win hundreds of thousands should they be successful.

When Redzel won the race in 2017, the Team Snowden trained galloper jumped at odds of $9.00.
