Haut Brion Her Secures Final Slot for The Everest

Mon 12th October 2020

Three Bridges Racing have acquired Chris Waller Racing’s slot for The Everest (1200m), and have announced that star mare Haut Brion Her will represent them in the $15 million race on October 17th.

The deal is understood to be a one-year agreement, with Chris Waller Racing giving his slot to Three Bridges Thoroughbreds for the 2020 The Everest, the birth place of Haut Brion Her.

Haut Brion Her has six wins from just ten career starts, including an impressive win in the Group 2 Sheraco Stakes this preparation, and will be ridden by Brenton on Saturday.

“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 said.

“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.”

The confirmation of Haut Brion Her finalises the field for the 2020 The Everest, with Classique Legend, Gytrash, Libertini, Nature Strip, Behemoth, Bivouac, Tofane, Farnan, Eduardo, Trekking, and Santa Ana Lane the other runners, forming the final field of 12.
