Well maybe a couple of the jockeys will learn that the "ride them like we are in an 800m race at Coffs Harbour" tactics never work over the Randwick 1200m. Never have. Never will.

Good horse won the race. Hopefully will head down South to show his class.

Interesting to see what they do with Nature Strip now. Spell or Melbourne.

The Everest story unfolds


..........................  RNSW paid a high price for a good story to sell about the Everest ............. but the program, as a whole, needs to be about more than one race .............and any idea the race has 'global' significance is just wild imagination.

RNSW was no so lucky with its other mountain race -- a name no one can spell, defaults to Kosko.

.................. 'Its Me' put the Kosko in a box that should now be closed ................. it was just a matter of time before smart connections hid a good horse in the bush ............... and took the lauded 'country runners' for a ride.

............ what happened today also put he mock on the nonsense of running  'hwy-robbery' races in the big-smoke ......... these low-grade events deceive most owners and most punters and present racing administrators as money grubbing.

Asleep at the wheel again Ol'Pete, did you not pay attention to some of the runners today?

I've just spoken to my good buddy Igor in Moscow.
"Mate, did you watch The Everest"?  I asked.
"I tried "he said "bad reception"...."very hazy, Comrade"
I tried to explain that there was nothing wrong with the reception, it was just a little fire North of the city, that became a big fire and then we started arguing about climate change......all downhill from there  :biggrin:
He did say if it was on again next year he will try again to watch The Everest.
I'm going to give Igor the flick!

Not knowing anything about the slot holder but Les Bridge and Carmel Size.....some good guys of racing there.
Have to love Les Bridge quoting Percy Sykes on the size of the girth of Classique Legend........"it's all in the genes"

Stewards

RACE 7: The TAB Everest 1200m:

Nature Strip – Began awkwardly. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

Trekking – Bumped shortly after the start by Nature Strip, which shifted in.

Santa Ana Lane – Began awkwardly and shortly afterwards was hampered by Eduardo, which shifted
in.

Behemoth – Began awkwardly and lost ground. N. Rawiller stated that whilst the gelding settled back
in the field, when it did not settle directly behind Dollar for Dollar it was inclined to race keenly and as a
result could not finish off the race. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

Bivouac – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced keenly in the
middle stages and near the 900m was steadied from the heels of Classique Legend.

Gytrash – When questioned regarding the gelding racing back in the field, J. Collett stated that he was
instructed to take up a prominent position if his mount began well, however, was given the option also
to ride the gelding quietly if it did not commence well. He said that Gytrash began only fairly and when
Classique Legend and Nature Strip, which were positioned to his immediate inside, began well, he
elected to come back in order to avoid being caught wide. He stated that with the fast early tempo
Gytrash was under pressure to maintain its position in the field and did not commence to make ground
until soon after straightening whereby the gelding was able to finish off the race reasonably well late in
the event.


Eduardo – When questioned regarding the tactics adopted on the gelding, rider R. King stated that she
was under no specific instructions as to where to settle in the race, but had expected to take up a
forward position. She added that she was advised also to ensure that Eduardo set a comfortable rhythm
throughout the event. She added that after commencing well she rode her mount in a neutral manner
throughout the early stages, but when Nature Strip did not improve to her inside Eduardo commenced
to race keenly and leaving the 1000m she endeavoured to restrain the gelding as she was aware it was
setting a fast early pace. She added that throughout the middle stages, Eduardo did not respond to her
efforts reduce the pace and as a consequence set too fast a tempo and was left without a finishing
effort.
A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

Dollar For Dollar – Slow to begin. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be lame
(4/5) in the off-hind leg.
Co-trainer Mr T. McEvoy was advised that a veterinary clearance will be required
before Dollar For Dollar is permitted to race/barrier trial again

Tofane – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. A post-race veterinary
examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

Libertini – From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced wide and
without cover for the majority of the event.

Haut Brion Her – Laid in over the final 200m.

Sounds like Gytrash might have won if the race was 1400m! Never mind him not handling 1200m.

Pace was just so fierce. Sectionals would be interesting. They have run a fast 1.08.27 on a track on the worse side of the Good 4. Last 600m was over 35 seconds so they must have been tearing up the turf early.

Rachel King couldn't restrain Eduardo. Dollar For Dollar was 4/5 lame.

Meanwhile Classique Legend ran 13.44, 10.73 and 10.73 and came home the last 600 in 33.29

Silk purses and sows ears


.................... any idea that the world's 'richest race on turf' would be run over 1200m at Randwick is a flight of fantasy.

A driving force, very sensibly,  behind this nonsense was an RNSW  'dare-to-be great' challenge to Racing Victoria .............. and, unbelievably, RVL said OK .............. we will lay down and die.............. and died it has.

................. what we now know is that racing, outside metropolitan Sydney and Melbourne on Saturdays, is an  irrelevance  ......... and the very viability of S&M racing on Saturdays is compromised by 'inflated fields' ............. paying known no-hopers $'000+ to just have a barrier trial.

............... the Australian racing industry is gambling irresponsibly with its future.

Amazing last 600 off such a hot pace.

I jumped off after his previous loss but he’s clearly a talent

Can't think who I heard today saying that he is probably the quickest finisher ad on a par with Chatauqua, only able to sustain for longer.

Looks like the intention is to be back for the Everest next year after hopefully winning sprints in HK, Dubai, Royal Ascot and Japan.
