The Everest

The Everest Horse Race

The Everest is the richest turf race in the world, with a total prize pool of $15 million. It is held at Randwick Racecourse and is run under weight-for-age conditions over 1200m. There is a $600,000 entry fee and in 2020, it will be run on Saturday, October 17.

The 2019 edition of the race was won by Yes Yes Yes, with Santa Ana Lane and Trekking finishing second and third respectively. Both horses finished less than a length behind the winner. Yes Yes Yes hasn’t raced since winning the $15 million race.

The first running of The Everest was in 2017, with Redzel claiming victory. He followed it up the next year with another victory, however, finished mid-field in the 2019 race.

The Everest was thrust into the spotlight in 2018 when organisers were set to advertise the race on the Sydney Opera House. A petition against the campaign had over 300,000 signatures, however, it still went ahead.

Yes Yes Yes set the Randwick 1200m track record in his 2019 Everest win. He ran home in a time of 1:07.32, stunning racing fans around the country.

The Everest Tips

All three winners of The Everest had odds of around $8.50 when they won. Even in Redzel’s second victory, he was not the favourite, that year it was the Anthony Freedman-trained Shoals. The history suggests that it isn’t the easiest race to find a winner but if you can you get decent value.
