French Expedition To Tackle The Everest

By Ray Thomas (The Daily Telegraph)

French trainer Francois Rohaut has ambitions to start top European sprinter Signs Of Blessing in the inaugural $10 million The Everest at Royal Randwick in October.

Signs Of Blessing, a Group 1 winner in France, is proven on racing's international stage and it would be a coup for Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club if the sprinter runs.

Rohaut told French newspaper Jour De Galop of his interest in The Everest, which will be the richest race run on turf in the world. It is expected Signs Of Blessing will be the first of a number of northern hemisphere-trained sprinters aimed at The Everest.

The $10 million race will be run with the intention to "provide a stage for showcasing the best Australian sprinters against leading international contenders".

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'landys told The Daily Telegraph he has been buoyed by the international interest in The Everest: "We always expected this race would get on the radar, internationally," V'landys said.

"It was the talk of Newmarket in England so I am not surprised it is also now being considered by European trainers. The Everest is going to have its own personality and charisma and to have this sort of interest with the concept still in the infant stage is very encouraging."
