The TAB Everest is the newest horse race in Australia and also the richest turf race in the world with a total of $14 million (AUD) in prize money. The 3rd running of The Everest will take place on Friday night, October 18 (US date/time), at Royal Randwick racecourse.

A weight-for-age sprint contested over 6 furlongs, The Everest is now the crown jewel of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival and the $14 million prize pool sees it surpass the iconic Melbourne Cup ($6.2 million) as the richest Australian horse race.

The Everest is unlike any other race contested down under and entry into The Everest field comes at a cost of $600,000 to connections. The concept is similar to the Pegasus World Cup as horse owners buy a slot and The Everest field has a capacity of 12 starters.
