The Everest Field 2023



Sydney’s Royal Randwick hosts the world’s richest race on turf on October 14 over 1200m. History will be made as twelve of the fastest horses compete for a slice of the Aus$20 million in prize money.

The Everest field is set at 12 runners, for three-year-old’s and upwards, under weight-for-age conditions, each runner is represented by stakeholders who purchase ‘slots’ in the field for approximately $2.1 million over a three-year commitment ($799,000 per year).

The most accomplished sprinters in Australia are usually snatched up quickly, but standout performers in the spring can put their hand up for late selection.

Those positions are able to be traded, sold, and available for joint venture or lease prior to the entry date. Six emergency runners are determined by an independent panel and selected from the ‘Everest Consolation’ Sydney Stakes (1200m), run at the same meeting. In the event of a scratching, the slot holder has the power to then select any of the six emergencies.

For example, for in 2018, Home of the Brave was scratched and replaced by another Godolphin runner, Osborne Bulls.

The field for the race is declared once all slot holders have confirmed their runners which has to be done by Tuesday 10am on race week. The barrier draw is conducted on the Tuesday prior to race day.
