Redzel has won the Everest, Australia’s richest horse race, for a second consecutive year at Randwick.
Ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, Redzel led the 1,200-metre feature from the early stages to post a clear victory over Trapeze Artist and Osborne Bulls.
The Everest, run after a week of controversy surrounding the projection of its barrier draw on Sydney’s Opera House, is the richest horse race in the world on turf.
It has a total prize pool of $13 million, including $5.8 million to the winner.
More to come.
