Racing NSW today has announced that a slot in the 2019 TAB Everest is available for sale via a tender process.
This is a rare and exclusive opportunity to participate in Australia’s richest race and become a part of the ever-growing Everest concept.
The $14 million TAB Everest will be run on Saturday, 19 October at Royal Randwick.
This 2019 Everest slot will be sold to the person or organisation that brings benefit and adds to the promotion and appeal of the race which has captured everyone’s attention.
Accordingly, the price paid will not be the sole factor in selecting the winning bid.
In accordance with the Slot License Agreement, the winning bid will receive the right to nominate a horse in the $14 million TAB Everest on 19 October and share in the prizemoney of that horse.
That means the slot holder can nominate their own horse or do a deal with the owner of another horse for the race.
The slot licence being offered is for 2019 only and there is no accompanying option for future years. This slot licence was previously held by Jadeskye Racing Pty Limited.
This tender process will be held over the next two weeks and closes at 4pm on Friday, 12 July 2019.
Racing NSW CEO, Peter V’landys AM, said: “The slot has attracted many interested parties who are willing to pay the amount necessary.
“The challenge for them is how they can show that they will bring something unique to The Everest. We have already done a Barrier Draw on the Opera House, so you can rule that out,” Mr V’landys said.
