BEST of luck to Rand­wick with their plans to run a $10 mil­lion sprint this Oc­to­ber where the 12 en­trants must part with $600,000 just to get a run.

It could be a se­ri­ous fil­lip for rac­ing in this coun­try, with the con­cept em­ployed suc­cess­fully in the Pe­ga­sus Cup in the US.

Nat­u­rally enough, the launch at­tracted huge pub­lic­ity, both for and against, given the 600 large first-up, but what took my fancy was the logo, com­plete with the im­pos­ing sil­hou­ette of the world’s tallest moun­tain.

Which may or may not be Ever­est, with some who have been to that part of the world claim­ing the moun­tains on the logo bore a dis­tinct re­sem­blance to Ama Dablam (6812m), a first cousin of Ever­est that stands down range a bit.
