Inglis Buy Everest Slot

Thursday, 30th March 2017

Inglis has announced that it has purchased one of the 12 slots in the $10m The Everest, to be run at Royal Randwick for the first time on Saturday, 14 October. The Everest (1200m) will become not only Australia’s richest race, but the world’s richest turf race. Owners or trainers of Inglis graduates who are interested in competing in the 2017 The Everest are encouraged to express their interest before 21 April. Priority will be given to Inglis graduates that have paid up for an Inglis Race Series, past or present. “I am delighted to be supporting this new initiative from Racing NSW and the ATC,’’ Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said. “The Everest is innovative, exciting and will now ensure that Sydney will be the home of the richest race day conducted in Australia each year, and the richest horse race on turf conducted anywhere in the world.” Webster added: “Inglis is the only auction house to get behind the Everest, we feel it is important to have a slot to assist our clients to participate."
