THE 2019 EVEREST - Inglis calls for expressions of interest

7th Apr 2019

Inglis is calling for official expressions of interest from connections of potential runners to fill its slot in this year’s $14m The Everest.

Inglis was one of the 12 original slot holders for the world’s richest race on turf and has taken up the option of again extending its Everest contract for a further year, ensuring it remains a slot holder until at least the 2021 edition of the race.

Owners or trainers of Inglis graduates who are interested in competing in the 2019 The Everest are encouraged to express their interest in the near future by contacting Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster on mark@inglis.com.au or 0419 610 809.

Priority will be given to Inglis graduates that have paid up for an Inglis Race Series, past or present.

Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster is excited about again being involved in what is Australia’s most lucrative race day.

“The Everest has been a sensation from the outset and continues to grow and it’s something Inglis is thrilled to be involved with,’’ Webster said.

“We feel we had the right horse last year in Santa Ana Lane (pictured), an $80,000 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale graduate but the late heavy rain put an end to his chances.

“We saw in the TJ Smith Stakes on the weekend that Santa is still up there in the upper echelon of sprinters in the country but there are a lot of quality candidates for this year’s Everest from Australia and around the world.

“The journey to the race with the ownership group is a unique and thoroughly entertaining experience and I call on connections of all top quality sprinters from around the world to get in contact as we look to climb Everest together in 2019.’’

Meanwhile there are just three weeks remaining for interested parties eager to buy their own Everest slot for 2019 to officially register their interest.

Slot holder GPI Racing is selling its slot for this year’s edition of the world’s richest turf race, opening up a rare opportunity for an individual or corporation to join in the journey.

The successful bidder will be determined by the vendor (GPI Racing) at the end of the expressions of interest period, on the basis of what is the highest offer at that time.

Expressions of interest close at 5pm on Tuesday April 30th 2019.

All expressions of interest are to be made in writing to Inglis’ General Manager of Bloodstock Sales Sebastian Hutch at sebastian.hutch@inglis.com.au.
