The final field for the $15 million The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick will be known when all slot holders have announced their representatives. 

This page will be updated as soon as the final field is known. Below is the field from 2021:


A final field of 12 sprinters will contest the 2021 The Everest with first place taking home $6.2 million in prizemoney.

The Les Bridge-trained Classique Legend aims to join Redzel as a back-to-back winner of The Everest having won the race in impressive fashion in 2020.

The six-year-old son of Not A Single Doubt returns from an unsuccessful stint in Hong Kong where he just didn’t acclimatize and finished 11th at his only start.

Bridge has given the flashy grey two barrier trials in preparation for his big first-up assignment, and he’s won both impressively.

The Gordon Richards-prepared Gytrash was 3rd in The Everest last year and aims to go two better following his 3rd placing behind Eduardo and Nature Strip in the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) last start.

Eduardo and Nature Strip go head to head again and will need to improve on their 2020 efforts where they finished 11th and 7th respectively.

Trekking and Libertini also return for another crack at the $15 million race having finished 4th and 8th in 2020, while Home Affairs, Masked Crusader and Wild Ruler are last start winners having their first go at the rich event.
