Two New Slot Holders In The 2019 TAB Everest

Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club are excited to announce two new Slot Holders in the 2019 TAB Everest, being Godolphin and the Melbourne Racing Club.

This announcement follows a tender process in respect of the vacant Slot available in the 2019 TAB Everest, which will arise from the forfeiture of the Slot held by Jadeskye Racing.

Following an extremely competitive tender process, Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club today announced that the successful tenderer for this vacant Slot is Godolphin.

In recognition of the strength of the bid lodged by the Melbourne Racing Club, it will also be part of the 2019 Everest through a partnership with the Australian Turf Club in respect of its Slot.

Racing NSW CEO Peter V’landys AM said: “We would like to thank all of the parties that lodged a tender. There were many parties interested in the 2019 Everest Slot. The tenders lodged were very strong and extremely competitive both in terms of price and the benefit that the tenderers could add to The Everest.

“Ultimately, the Slot available through the tender process has been granted to Godolphin. Godolphin is the world’s largest and most successful owner of thoroughbred horses and its support and promotion of thoroughbred racing in Australia and internationally is unrivalled.

"The Board was very impressed with Godolphin’s proposal and the benefits it will bring to both The Everest and Australian racing.

“Further, as the tender by the Melbourne Racing Club was so strong, we, and our partners the Australian Turf Club, wanted to explore every option for it to be part of The Everest in 2019.”

Australian Turf Club Chairman Matt McGrath said: “We are pleased to provide the Melbourne Racing Club the opportunity to be part of The Everest for 2019.

"As host of the event and also a Slot holder, we are always open to consider providing great partners with the opportunity to assume our Slot.

“The Australian Turf Club welcomes the partnership for 2019 with the Melbourne Race Club through their Chairman Peter Le Grand and CEO Josh Blanksby.

“Australian racing will benefit greatly with a super raceday featuring The Everest at Royal Randwick and the Caulfield Cup at Caulfield Racecourse and we look forward to forging a stronger relationship beyond 2019 with the Melbourne Racing Club.”

The $14 million TAB Everest will be run on Saturday 19 October at Royal Randwick with 12 runners.
