The Everest Betting Odds Comparison - Randwick

16/10/2021 07:00:00

The Everest is a massive race and is currently the world’s richest race on turf, with this Australian classic attracting several global superstars in a race which was first inaugurated in 2017 and we saw Redzel claim the spoils in 2017 and 2018, with Yes Yes Yes scoring a success in 2019 before Classique Legend was able to score a win in 2020.

The 2021 Everest should be an exciting encounter, with the race scheduled to take place on 16 October, with horses having to be supplemented to the tune of $600,000 so there’s a hefty ransom for simply entering this encounter.

Who Are Favourites for 2021 Everest Race?

Nature Strip has been making waves in his native Australia this season, with Chris Waller having an explosive six-year-old on his hands. His most recent appearance was in the Heineken T J Smith Stakes back in April, with the horse scoring the spoils in the six furlong contest and there was a two-length win over Masked Crusader.

The horse was sent off as a 6/1 shot and the horse finished seventh in the 2020 TAB Everest race, with James McDonald on board the runner on that occasion and more will be needed if the runner is going to oblige this time around.

Classique Legend will be looking to land a second successive Everest title, with the horse being sent off as the 16/5 favourite to score a double and it might be that the runner is trading at a bigger price this time around.

The connections of Classique Legend have kept their powder relatively dry since that race although the horse was given an appearance at Sha Tin in December, with the runner finishing well down the order when competing in the Longines Hong Kong Sprint.

Masked Crusader and Stay Inside Can Compete in 2021 Everest

Masked Crusader has been given a big shout for the 2021 Everest despite a series of erratic performances, with the Michael, John and Wayne Hawkes-trained charge having managed no better than seventh place in the Schweppes All Aged Stakes.

The horse was sent off as the 2/1 favourite on that occasion, with more to enjoy about the previous performance when there was a runner-up performance at Randwick in April, while the horse won the Keogh Homes William Reid Stakes which was a Group 1 encounter in March.

Stay Inside is a youthful two-year-old and the Richard and Michael Freedman-trained runner is going to have a lively chance in this race based on the evidence that has been seen so far. The Group 1 Longines Golden Slipper success could pave the way for future wins.


2020 The Everest Rece card

The Everest is not a horse race that is steeped in history although the 2020 renewal will be the fourth time that it takes place and Randwick Racecourse have the honour of hosting the richest turf race in the world. In 2019, the purse was A$14 million and we’re expecting that amount to be roughly similar for the 2020 heat, with horses needing a A$600,000 qualification fee in order to enter.

Nature Strip is currently the favourite to win The Everest 2020, with the five-year-old having been in impressive form this year although we’ve not seen the horse make an outing since April 2020 and there’s always an element of unpredictability when there’s been a lay-off between now and the previous race.

The Chris Waller-trained charge won the T J Smith Stakes at Randwick on 4 April and this was a Group 1 encounter where Nature Strip obliged as the 16/5 favourite, beating Redzel into third place and the latter is a horse that has claimed two Everest titles during his career.

Previously to that victory, Nature Strip won the Hyland Race Colours Challenge Stakes in early March beating Redzel, with connections sure of a decent showing although this is likely to be a difficult race to win.

In their Everest racecard betting, bookmaker bet365 regard Classique Legend as the horse most likely to challenge the market favourite, with the five-year-old having a very ordinary 2019 although the Les Bridge-trained horse landed an impressive win in the Bob Charley AO Stakes in early June and could be in the frame.

Bivouac looks another likely runner and the four-year-old has seen plenty of action on the Australian tracks over the past few months. Trained by James Cummings and running in the Godolphin colours, the horse has competed at Caulfield, Flemington and Randwick, although the only victory came at Flemington when winning the Seppelt Wines Newmarket Handicap.

It appears that 2017 and 2018 winner Redzel won’t be among the horses lining up for The Everest 2020, with last year’s winner Yes Yes Yes also likely to be absent, although Exceedance, Farnan and Alligator Blood are all horses that could go close.


Horse racing is huge in Australia and we’re getting to the most popular part of the season, with high-profile encounters taking place on a weekly basis.

The Everest is among the most prestigious races, with this Australian Turf Club Weight for Age Thoroughbred horse race taking place over 1200 metres and it is run at the Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, Australia.

While the race isn’t yet eligible for Group status, having only started being run in 2017, there is plenty of grandeur surrounding the renewal this time around and we’re especially keen to see one horse in action.

Redzel Bidding for Everest Hat-Trick

Redzel was among the horses that lined up for the 2017 version of the race as a five-year-old, although the runner trained by Peter & Paul Snowden was the inaugural winner and he returned to the track a year later to claim victory once again.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy will look to land a three-timer in a race which is likely to have a field of a dozen horses, although Redzel is not the current favourite and can be backed at odds of 9/1.

The horse trading as favourite with several bookmakers is Pierata, with the horse having recently won a Group 2 encounter at Randwick over a distance of five-and-a-half furlongs.

Earlier in September, Redzel narrowly beat the same horse at the same track, with a head separating the two runners who are now likely to renew their rivalry in The Everest.

Big Prize Money Available for Race

There is a prize fund of $13 million available for The Everest, with this making the race the richest in Australia, while it’s also the richest turf race in the entire world.

This race is the feature one of the Sydney Spring Carnival, with the entry fee structure involving twelve slots being available at the tune of $600,000 apiece.

Santa Ana Lane also looks like a runner for The Everest and this is a seven-year-old who recently ran at Flemington and looked the part.

The Tony McEvoy & Calvin McEvoy-trained charge finished second behind favourite Sunlight in the race and will surely come on for that particular run in an attempt to land the amazing purse in this encounter.

Sunlight is trading at odds of 8/1 and will hope to get a slot of his own for this race, with all of Australia now on countdown for this encounter.
