Racing NSW Takes The Everest to US
Racing NSW is taking the highly valuable diamond-encrusted The Everest trophy to Los Angeles in a bid to sell the world's richest turf race to America, reports racingnsw.com.au. The Everest, which was won by Redzel in its inaugural running last year, will feature at this Saturday night's G'day USA tourism event alongside famous Aussie celebs and dignitaries. This year the race will be run at Royal Randwick on 13 October for a staggering $13 million in prize money. "The Everest in its first year captured the imagination of the Australian public and we are now determined to capture worldwide attention, particularly in America where significant betting occurred on the race," said Racing NSW chief executive, Peter V'landys.
