About The Everest

The world’s leading sprinters have gathered at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney to battle for world glory – the richest turf race in the world.

Everest is a slot race, so the slot holder pays for participation in the race.

When Everest was launched, it was promised that it would be a game-changer for racing in Sydney and an opportunity to showcase the best Australian sprinters against leading international competitors in one of the world’s most prestigious races, the Everest Races. Many horses competing in a race like Sydney Everest or New South Wales Everest may opt for the big prize money, but some horses competing in a race may prefer to target a more lucrative race like the Melbourne Cup, Sydney Derby, or Sydney Stakes.

Everest Day also features an open field of horses trained in the country and now also on display nationwide – trained horses from the United States and Canada, and from around the world. Everest Day is also known as the opening day of the US Horse Racing Association (USHRA).

The prize money for the race will be repaid to 12th place, giving each runner in the field a share of the stake. Another advantage of this race is that every horse that competes in an Everest field will receive a share of the prize money. Up to 12th place, the prize money will be paid to each horse in the field that is in the stakes and to the winner of that race.

The field has a capacity of 12 starters, but only the richest racehorse owners can buy their way into the event. There is only one way to secure a place in the gigantic Everest race, which costs a whopping $600,000.

The 1200-metre Randwick course offers an advantage to the locally trained contingent, with Australian horses dominating the Everest tips this season. It features horses that have dominated the autumn sprint races, including the TJ Smith Stakes.
