PETERS ON STORM WATCH FOR EVEREST, GOLDEN EAGLE

Perth’s leading owner Bob Peters has unveiled the three horses he says could be potential TAB Everest contenders after an inquiry from a slot holder this week.

Last spring Peters campaigned his outstanding mare Arcadia Queen in Sydney, she ran 11th in the Everest and an unlucky fifth in the Golden Eagle and that’s the path his rising star Superstorm could follow in 2020.

Under Chris Waller’s care Arcadia Queen managed to win the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes first-up while Peters also secured a slot for Enticing Star but that mare had to be retired after failing at her Sydney debut.

That slot, Chris Waller Racing, was eventually filled by the winner Yes Yes Yes.

Peters said Superstorm would be the most likely prospect, but would only target the Everest if he secured a slot early enough, and labelled lightly raced duo Windstorm and Showmanship as horses that could develop into high class sprinters.

“I had a call this week about (the Everest) and they asked me what I had,’’ Peters said on Perth radio.

“I told them there’s two or three horses there they could keep an eye on and see how they come up. Maybe the best one of them might be good enough.

“Obviously people are casting their eye all over the place and we’ll see what comes of it.’’

Superstorm is already Group 1 placed, he chased home Everest and Golden Eagle bound Alligator Blood in the Australian Guineas at the end of February, and was runner-up to stablemate Regal Power in the All Star Mile.

Peters said after the radio interview he hasn’t decided which path he’ll take with Superstorm towards the $7.5m Golden Eagle (1500m), for four-year-olds, including whether he’ll be transferred to Chris Waller or remain under Grant and Alana Williams’ care.

“He’s still in the paddock but will be due to come in shortly,’’ he said.

“He’ll take his time and get ready, we can trial him over here and have him ready to go.

“It depends on if he got a slot in the Everest, that might have a bearing on (program and trainer). At this stage I’d take him to Melbourne and go up to Sydney from there.’’

Arcadia Queen is unlikely to race in Sydney this spring, having been transferred back to the Williams stable, with Peters looking to Melbourne for her.

Superstorm isn’t currently in the TAB market for the Everest but he’s on the $11 line in Golden Eagle pre-noms betting.

So who are Windstorm and Showmanship?

Windstorm is also a rising four-year-old, he’s by Redoute’s Choice and has won two from two. He’s due to make his return at Belmont this Saturday where he’ll start a short priced favourite.

Showmanship is soon to be five and he’s only had the three starts for two wins including a first-up success in Perth last weekend.

Peters concedes both horses would need to make huge steps through the grades between now and the spring to even be worthy of consideration for a slot owner, and they may be horses who emerge in 2021.

But it’s going to be a year of change for Australia’s richest race with the retirements of the likes of Redzel, Sunlight, Yes Yes Yes and Pierata. Nature Strip, the current favourite, is the only horse secured to date.

“It depends on how they come up. We don’t know what level they are going to get to yet because they are just starting off,’’ Peters said.

“You’ve got to have some sort of an aim and we’ve got some unfinished business in a few races over east.”

Never played Lotto Pete? Pokies? Had a bet on the races?

You understand odds & probability right?

Still standing


................ as the official record stands ... I am still the 'appointed' consumer representative for racing in NSW .......... the decision to not formalize my reappointment ........ to then remove from the racing legislation the role of a consumer representative goes to my credit .... as does most of what I have continued to say, in the interests of punters, for the past 20 years.

I could be wrong but with Covid19 and retirement of some sprinters, I just don’t think the depth will be there as previous years. The Everest will probably still have the best quality field for the year though.

Nature Strip, Gytrash and Classic Legend are qualified and you would horses like Farnan, Alligator Blood, Loving Gaby, Bivouac and Santa Anna Lane to be there hopefully too. However with travel restrictions, I do wonder what interstate horses do.

The field from last year and one of the best I have ever seen in a race.

According to the CM story today David Vandyke stated  Alligator Blood is not going to The Everest and  is being aimed at The Golden Eagle with one run beforehand.

Rothfire will be a worthy QLD representative after his demolition job on Saturday ran sensational time considering the track rating and should be improved opined jockey Jim

Weakest Everest field as a whole to date. Can’t blame the organisers as the sprinting depth has not been there this year.

The Everest, dare-to-be-great, racing gamble is not proven

...... even so, RVL has given RNSW every assistance in its plan to take the Spring national racing limelight.

RVL has run dead for some years now ... an astonishing dereliction of a racing franchise once of global relevance  ..... a formal inquiry by a panel of royal-commissioner 'stewards' .....is well overdue.

More generally administrators continued dedication, nationally, to inflated-field racing will see the Australian racing industry go into terminal decline ............. this business model tells most punting customers to go somewhere else ........... anywhere else.

Farnan out, Dollar for Dollar in.

Tony McEvoy sees his surprise TAB Everest runner Dollar For Dollar as a horse in the Redzel mould – a no-nonsense, rugged, on pace warrior – and he’s adamant he will do his connections proud on the biggest stage.


Those connections now include Aquis after an eleventh hour decision from the slot holder not to press on to the $15m feature with Golden Slipper winner Farnan.

The three-year-old passed a vet examination on Monday morning but Aquis managing director Shane McGrath said, after discussions with Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, it was conceded the colt didn’t have the right preparation to be taking on an Everest.

So the Tony and Calvin McEvoy stable and eight-year-old Dollar For Dollar received the unlikely call up.

“What an incredible phone call to get,’’ McEvoy said.

“What an honour to have someone want to run your horse in the biggest race. Obviously they’d done their form and chosen him as the horse they wanted to represent them.

“We are humbled and excited and looking forward to the weekend.”
