Redzel wins $5.8 million in the inaugural running of The Everest

Redzel wins $5.8 million in the inaugural running of The Everest Redzel proved himself the in-form sprinter of the year when he raced clear to take a $5.8 million winner's cheque for his owners in the inaugural running of The Everest at Randwick on Saturday. Redzel took The Everest slot of owner and breeder James Harron, who shared in the biggest turf prize on earth with Redzel's owners Triple Crown Syndications. In a race of blistering speed, Redzel camped on the pace and was simply too speedy for Lindsay Park's leading hope Vega Magic, with the former Japanese horse Brave Smash holding down third place just in front of a late-charging Chautauqua.
Ridden the perfect race by Kerrin McEvoy and trained by Peter and Paul Snowden, Redzel won his fifth race in a row in The Everest. He was pursued by Harron as his Everest contender early last month and was the sixth horse to win a slot in the race.
He has now raced 20 times for 10 wins and his prizemoney soared to more than $7 million with the victory.
McEvoy paid tribute to the Snowdens after the race.
"I'm so privileged to be riding these horses for Peter and Paul Snowden. They are master horsemen and job well done to them," he said.
