Australian Turf Club has announced the renaming of its six-week Sydney Spring Carnival to Everest Carnival which will conclude on Saturday 13 October with the running of the world’s richest race on turf, the $13m The Everest.
The new identity reflects the success of the inaugural running of The Everest in 2017 and also ATC’s commitment to growing the race’s significance on the Australian sporting calendar.
Australian Turf Club’s Head of Marketing, Chris Bevan sees the rebrand as a further step in Sydney leveraging its highest profile racing event.
“The impact of The Everest in its first year across Sydney and the global racing community was astonishing and this rebrand of our Spring racing calendar to ‘‘Everest Carnival’’ will only further highlight the world-class racing and fantastic on-course experiences available at Rosehill Gardens and Royal Randwick over Spring.
“Everest Carnival” will run from Saturday 8 September and conclude on Saturday 13 October with the second running of the $13 million The Everest”, said Mr Bevan.
