Gai’s English Gets Tabcorp’s Seal Of Approval For The Everest Shootout

By Ray Thomas (The Daily Telegraph)

Gai Waterhouse returned from a midyear European holiday to some welcome news — her outstanding mare English has secured a start in the inaugural $10 million The Everest.

Tabcorp has decided to make an early call on its Everest slot and on Tuesday night selected English as its runner.

English becomes the fifth confirmed starter in The ­Everest after Chautauqua, She Will Reign, Houtzen and Fell Swoop.

Waterhouse, who trains in partnership with Adrian Bott, said English has returned from her winter spell and was being prepared specifically for the $10 million The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick on October 14.

“She is back in the stable and looks super,’’ Waterhouse said. “She is a big, strong mare and her record at Randwick is outstanding."

English, a Group 1 winner of the All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick, has an excellent record over sprints distances on her home track with dual wins in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes and successive placings in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes behind Chautauqua over the Everest course and distance.

“I think the form out of the TJ Smith Stakes is the right form for The Everest," Waterhouse said. “It is not surprising to me that the three placegetters (Chautauqua, English, Fell Swoop) from that race are in The ­Everest now."
