Waterhouse Hoping To Win The Everest

By Brad Gray

Gai Waterhouse is the latest trainer to throw their support behind The Everest and it’s enormous $10 million prize purse, joining the likes of Joe Pride, Matt Dale and Bryce Heys.

“It’s a wonderful thing like the Melbourne Cup and the tennis that we’ve just witnessed last week. It brings a lot of people to participate and get involved,” said the Hall Of Fame trainer.

“It puts us in the spotlight for overseas where people are interested and want to know about it because there is so much prize money at stake. It’s the money that brings people to take their horses all over the world isn’t it?”

“I was on The Morning Show today and was talking about it. It is definitely on everybody’s lips.”

“The public will be interested because it’s such an amazing amount of money.”

Waterhouse closely followed the Pegasus World Cup held recently in Florida and was immediately hooked on the concept.

“I can see exactly why you would follow and do the same thing.”

“I hope it’s a great success and I hope I win it!”

As far as an early tip goes Waterhouse suggested that English would be “the perfect horse for it.”

The Everest will be run at Randwick on 14 October 2017 and thereafter on the second Saturday of October each year.
