ATC Launches International & Domestic Search For 2018 Everest Runner

Australian Turf Club has commenced a formal Expressions of Interest process for connections to partner with the Club’s slot for the second running of the world’s richest race on turf, the $13 million Everest at Royal Randwick.

ATC will again look to secure a runner from Australia or overseas to promote Sydney racing and the Club to existing along with new local and worldwide audiences.

Criteria including but not limited to the following will be used by ATC in the search for its slot partner:

  • Career performance and international rating, along with performance at Group level during a horse’s career but particularly during the past 12 months;
  • Extent of the commercial proposal put forward by owners or representatives;
  • Horses who have won or performed exceptionally well at Group level in recognised thoroughbred racing countries.

Along with the EOI process, ATC will consider other runners for selection as a potential Everest partner.

In 2017, ATC joined with Australian Bloodstock and its Japanese-bred runner Brave Smash ridden by UK-based Jamie Spencer, who ran third in the inaugural running of the Everest.

Australian Turf Club General Manager International and Wagering James Ross said the $13 million Everest was already creating huge interest five months before the race on Saturday 13 October.

“The search by ATC and all other slot owners for a runner is one of the most exciting parts of the Everest even this far out from the race itself,’’ Mr Ross said.

“ATC has already been approached by interested parties and we will continue to seek out potential horses who not only fit our strategic objectives but who will also be highly competitive.’’

ATC is asking interested parties to lodge formal expressions by post, courier or email.

Information or inquiries about the ATC’s Slot Expression of Interest form can be sent to jamesross@theATC.com.au
