An announcement will be made today revealing the enhancements to Australia’s richest raceday at Randwick on October 14 and the Sydney spring carnival as The Everest continues to take shape.

It is expected more than $1 million will be added to a variety of races forming stepping stones to the new $10m sweepstakes for sprinters. The much-touted Craven Plate increase from $175,000 to $500,000 — anticipated to provide Winx with a final Cox Plate lead-up in her home state — will be confirmed.

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’landys always anticipated The Everest would stimulate plenty of discussion and publicity, but it has exceeded his expectations.

“The Everest is exceeding everyone’s expectations. The publicity it is receiving is unprecedented, not only in Australia but internationally,” V’landys said. “At Ascot, the talk was all about The Everest and (Australian jockey) Blake Shinn has done a tremendous job with The Everest all over his breeches while riding for Wesley Ward, a trainer we’re trying to attract, in the United States.

“We are going to have some surprises ahead that will even take it to a higher level.”

V’landys added that the inquiries from the connections of international candidates outweighed the number of slots available.

“We’ve been inundated with requests to reopen and extend the selling of slots but we won’t be doing that,” V’landys explained. “We have had people prepared to pay even higher amounts than originally asked to buy a slot, but we’re leaving it at 12 slots. Our aim is to make it worth $15 million within three years and we want to grow it to $20 million at some point. This is only the start.”

Half the field has been tentatively finalised, with several more to be confirmed in the next month.

The TAB has this week locked in English to run for 10 lucky customers, who will enjoy the raceday experience with the Kelly family who own the mare.

Australian Turf Club chief executive Darren Pearce was thrilled to have English join the horses that finished each side of her in the past two Group I TJ Smith Stakes — Chautauqua and Fell Swoop.

The ATC own a slot and have received 25 applications from those associated with local and overseas gallopers. They will announce the horse they align with by the end of this month.

“Most of the horses are well known to us. Some of the internationals we need to understand a little more about their history and suitability,” Pearce said. “There are also a few up and comers that have been put into the mix by trainers that haven’t got to that superior racing level but have the potential. We’ll work out our shortlist and then pick the horse that best helps us promote the race. It is tremendous to pull together the Golden Slipper winner and the Magic Millions winner with the TJ Smith trifecta and a Royal Ascot winner from just what we know now.”

The Everest Highlights A Revitalised Spring Carnival
 

Sydney’s plans for a blockbuster global racing and entertainment event – the world’s richest race on turf, the $10 million The Everest – has received a further boost with Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club today unveiling major improvements to Sydney’s spring racing program.

The Everest will be the highlight of a revitalised Sydney Spring Carnival which features important enhancements to the program for three-year-old and middle distance weight-for-age races. The sprinting program leading into The Everest has also been enhanced and the staying program boosted with the ATC St Leger being revived and added to The Everest Day.

In addition to The Everest, prizemoney will be boosted by close to $2 million for the 2017 Sydney Spring Carnival which will now offer more than $22.5 million in stakes from Saturday 9 September to Saturday, 14 October 2017.

These changes support Racing NSW and Australian Turf Club’s strategy to develop The Everest and Spring Carnival into a world recognised event. The Everest race meeting on 14 October 2017 will now become Australia’s richest raceday, featuring the world’s richest race on turf.

“Saturday October 14 will be an historic event for thoroughbred racing in Australia and will reinforce Sydney’s positon as a leading global event city,” said Racing NSW Chairman, Mr Russell Balding AO.

“The Everest is creating unprecedented interest both inside and outside racing, from within Australia and internationally. It is timely to modernise and strengthen the racing program during the spring in Sydney,” Mr Russell Balding added.

Australian Turf Club Chairman, Laurie Macri said: “The Sydney Spring Carnival continues to deliver racing of the highest quality and these program improvements will provide enhanced opportunities for connections with horses in sprinting, middle distance and staying categories.

“The revised three-year-old program in particular is very exciting as it presents a more streamlined pathway towards the Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose. This also allows a better progression for three-year-old sprinter-milers aimed at feature races in Melbourne later in spring,” Mr Macri added.

The programming changes will deliver four consecutive weeks of Group One racing at Rosehill Gardens and Royal Randwick leading into The Everest race meeting on 14 October 2017. The changes are summarised below with the full details of changes attached to this media release.

Three-Year-Olds
The centrepiece of a modernised program for three-year-olds sees the Group One $1 million De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose staged a fortnight later at Rosehill Gardens on 23 September, providing a streamlined pathway for three-year-olds aiming at shorter distance races.

The Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes on 9 September swaps dates with the De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose in a more structured program for horses increasing in distance towards the Group 1 Moët & Chandon Spring Champion Stakes.

The set-weight and penalty scale for the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes and Group 2 Run to the Rose have been amended to ensure more balanced conditions. The Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) will be held on Spring Champion Stakes Day, 7 October 2017.

Middle-distance Weight-for-age races
The middle-distance program has been revamped to provide for a progression of three weight-for-age races from 1600m to 2000m, commencing with the Group 1 Colgate Optic White George Main Stakes (1600m) on 16 September 2017. The Group 2 Hill Stakes will now be run over 1800m on 30 September 2017, with the pathway of weight-for-age races culminating with the Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) being held on The Everest program.

Prizemoney for both the Hill Stakes and Craven Plate has been increased to $500,000, matching that of the Colgate Optic White George Main Stakes.

Sprinting program
The Listed City Tatts Lightning will be added to the program on Everest Day to be run at 1200m under weight-for-age conditions. The prizemoney for the race has been increased to $500,000 and will be a strong support race on the program as well as providing emergency runners for The Everest.

The Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) – as a key lead-in race for The Everest on 30 September 2017 – has had its prizemoney significantly elevated to $500,000.

Finally, the set-weights and penalty conditions of the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) on 16 September 2017 will be amended to be less punitive on well-performed horses.

ATC St Leger revival
The program for The Everest Day will be boosted by revival of the ATC St Leger. The race will be added to that program and be run over 2600m at set-weights and penalty conditions for prizemoney of $500,000.

Anniversary Highway
With The Everest race meeting coinciding with the launch of Highway races in mid-October 2015, the meeting will also feature the Anniversary Highway carrying prizemoney of $200,000.

The Everest race meeting
The Everest Day’s racing will include the City Tatts Lightning (1200m) and St Leger (2600m). In addition to the races outlined above, the program will also feature the Listed Reginald Allen Quality (1400m) for three-year-old fillies and a feature race for two-year-olds.

Who do they hope to attract to this ?

You have the Metropolitan the week before, The Caulfield Cup the week after with also the City Tattersalls Club Cup.

Perhaps it will suit Lloyd Williams fresh approach, giving him 3 and a bit weeks to the Melbourne Cup.

If the above quote is true why not run Everest A and Everest B..........Everest B would be self funding, maybe a little less prizemoney i.e. the $7.2mil.....or whatever the field size was....if only 8 runners it would be $4.8mill.....if 18 runners it would be $10.8mill?.....give more owners a shot at the big bucks!!.....it wouldn't cost RNSW a cent

True this although according to Sky the whole world is talking about The Everest.

It can retain some international credibility if Bryce and Spieth can get their acts together though. 

They are Kiwis, you know.

Everest credibility to hinge on Caravaggio

MATT STEWART

SYDNEY’S desperate bid to lure international runners for its Everest slot race may have suffered a terminal blow in England early yesterday.

Its major and probably sole target, Irish star Caravaggio, ran fourth in the July Cup at Newmarket as a raging evenmoney favourite.

Caravaggio is the $8 second favourite with Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign in TAB markets for the October 14 Everest. Chautauqua is the $4.60 favourite.

Trainer Aidan O’Brien did not rule out an Everest bid after the defeat, but pre-race suggestions were that only a win would make a trip to Sydney more than a possibility.

In what could be an ironic twist in racing’s border war, Racing Victoria will have a scout in England this week who will meet O’Brien in a bid to lure Caravaggio for the Darley Classic at Flemington in Cup week.

Everest uncertainty over Caravaggio comes as Sydney scrambles to create a $3 million quarantine facility at Canterbury racecourse, including an artificial training track.

That announcement angered some trainers in Sydney, including Clarry Conners, who said millions spent to create a facility for internationals — who might not come — should be used to upgrade other racetracks.

Canterbury is likely to be sold for residential development by 2021, putting a use-by date on the upgrade.

Racing NSW has dismissed claims the upgrade would be anything more than a hopeful Everest carrot, saying locals would be able to use it for trackwork and trials.

If Caravaggio did come, connections would have to pay at least $150,000 to fly him out, or have the cost subsidised by the Australian Turf Club.

The Melbourne racing media are really pissed at The Everest

Really? Matt Stewart again  :sleep:

Is there ever any original thought that comes out of Victorian racing journalism any more?

Or are they all required to toe the authoritarian line set out for them by the powers that be lest they lose their press passes?

The boss of Caulfield is rather pissed off.

I suspect the new St Leger will attract a few internationals as well as possibly Lloyds seriously classy stayers depending on the weight structure of the race.

Apart from anything else didn't Caulfield change the date of the 1000 guineas from last year so that

it was virtually impossible for a filly to run in both the Flight and the guineas?

Bubba, up here you don't see the media death riding Melbourne racing.

We celebrate the Spring carnival as much as Victoria would. I've been a critic of the Everest but that article is just poo from Stewart.

While Matt Stewart's desire for a story can get a bit tiresome, the commentators on RSN do seem to be prepared to discuss difficult issues.

If Clarry Conners was indeed angry who could he go to in the Sydney press.

Even Chris Roots looks like he has a gig on Sky and he works for a newspaper that describes itself as" independent always"
That probably puts every Sydney journalist on Sky's payroll and under the thumb of Racing NSW.

Did get a bit of a chuckle the other day on Sky Radio.
When A Cavallo was asked about the chances of his mount Crim that day, he noted what an apt name for a racehorse in this business.
Everybody's pal Coshee nearly choked, but RNSW, you can only control  some of the people, some of the time.

Hey mate. I dont listen to RSN.

You say they discuss the "difficult issues".

Any discussion on the truckload of Victorian money going over the border to SA?

Any of the press questioning why the deal is all hush hush?

Patrick Bartley was the only one brave enough to point out that racing.com will be promoting corporate betting on SA racing for which RVL gets zero return.

 That I saw anyway. Maybe RSN did as well and I didn't see it.

Anyone questioning why the stakeholders aren't being told how much of their money went out the door?

And while we are on the difficult issues...

Anyone on RSN discussing the miserable state of the Flemington track?

Anyone who is a serious punter knows that Flemington is "off" and has been for some time now.  Whole books have been written on Eagle Farm but I had more confidence betting there than
 at Flemington.

Did they discuss the "greyhound racing" conducted at Caulfield last Saturday with the rail out 10m?

Just askin   :biggrin:

The anticipated clash of Chautauqua and She Will Reign is enough to sell The Everest, which is Australia's richest race now. Fitting it should be a sprint held over 1200m at Royal Randwick.

Remind me Dave. What are we looking forward to in this year's Melbourne Cup? At the top of the market we have Red Cardinal, Francis Of Assisi and Albert.

Wow. Can hardly wait for that mouth watering clash :sleep:

Apart from Authorized, I doubt many have even heard of these. Whereas if you asked the Australian horse racing follower who Chautauqua and She Will Reign were they would probably laugh at the question.

The Melbourne Cup has lost it's identity by having anonymous (to Australian racing fans) horses. There is no anticipation any more.

Sure. They make big bucks selling the idea of "the great handicap" to the champagne guzzling non-punting public once a year.

But the people who post here are the ones who lose out. No longer do we get excited as Caulfield Cup approaches. Hell the MRC even wants to make it WFA.

Chatauqua and She Will Reign are "interesting" .Albert? Who the  :censored:  is Albert?
