Everest race day

Why the TAB Everest Day is the World’s Richest Turf Race

The sixth running of the TAB Everest Day at Royal Randwick has arrived. One of the biggest sporting events on the yearly racing calendar, the richest race in Australia attracts some of the world’s best sprinters, but it’s not just locals who should take note. With $15 million to be won or lost in a little over a minute, the TAB Everest is also the world’s richest turf race. Twelve horses racing 1,200 metres with $15 million to be won or lost in a little over a minute. If you’re going to attend one racing event this year, then this is it.

So where does the eye-watering prizemoney come from? The race has an unusual entry fee, similar to that of the Pegasus World Cup Race in which the 12 racing slots are sold for $600,000 each. The owners of the slot can then choose to race, lease, contract or share a starter, or sell their place in the gate. Legendary Aussie duo, Peking Duk is set to headline the day with a free performance a the After The Last concert in the Theatre of the Horse. Previous acts include Jason Derulo, One Direction’s Liam Payne and Kelly Rowland.

The race will also see the new WINX Stand open for all race day guests for the first time, with panoramic views of the track. We recommended checking out the free Club Cuba on the ground floor with huge Havanan energy and mojitos, fedoras and salsa dancers a-plenty.

Not sure of what to wear? Wearing white with a splash of light blue is a tradition for The Everest but we encourage you to dress smartly and for the occasion. If you book in advance, tickets are just $35 (you can save up to $10 on $45 door price) and don’t forget the ticket includes free travel on trains, buses, light rail and ferries.
