Redzel Books Everest Ticket?

By Brad Gray At Royal Randwick

While it’s yet to be confirmed, you’d be brave to suggest that Redzel won’t be snapped up by a slot holder ahead of The Everest after his dominant display in the $150,000 Group Three Concorde Stakes (1000m).

After the morning scratching of Super Too the race changed dynamic but allowed Kerrin McEvoy to take control of the race from the outset before never being headed, with Spieth, Nieta and The Monstar all finishing in market order but ultimately proving no match for the Triple Crown-owned speedster.

“It’s been all about an Everest preparation and today just started that,” co-trainer Paul Snowden said.

“This leads to the Moir where he’ll be mighty hard to beat there and hopefully we pick up (an Everest) slot very soon. Spieth was in the race and we wanted to make our intention early in the preparation that he deserves to be there.

“This horse has come back in fine fettle and I’ve been quoted earlier in the preparation that this will be his best preparation yet. The way he can idle when he gets to a cruising speed, we’ve seen how he can sustain it over six furlongs.”

Kerrin McEvoy has enjoyed success on Redzel in the past and suggested that the son of Snitzel wouldn’t definitely make his presence felt come October if he was to gain a start in Royal Randwick’s $10m sprint feature.

“He has won a Group One at weight for age and although everyone is aiming at The Everest, he deserves his spot in the field no doubt,” said McEvoy.

“I think he has improved. He felt fantastic and is in for a good campaign.

“It’s funny, he feels like he has been around forever but he is only five year old so there is no reason why he can’t improve. He is loving his racing and makes his own luck which makes it easy.”
