Premiere brings The Ever­est into fo­cus

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - MATT JONES

RAC­ING NSW must have been very happy af­ter the Premiere Stakes.

The thriller pro­moted The Ever­est bet­ter than it could have imag­ined. The sec­ond run­ning of the $13m race is go­ing to be even bet­ter than the first judg­ing by yes­ter­day’s lead-up.

Mean­while, the ATC is look­ing for a new Ever­est run­ner af­ter Na­ture Strip’s flop on Fri­day night ruled him out of the race.

Ex­pect an­other slot holder, Max Whitby and Neil Wer­rett, to an­nounce their run­ner to­day. The deal was done yes­ter­day.

In­vin­ci­ble Star was the last Ever­est-bound horse home in the Premiere and now faces a tough task to turn things around in a fort­night.

“She was dis­ap­point­ing,” jockey Stephen Baster told ste­wards. “I got across a bit too easy and she got on the bri­dle. With Redzel in the race, she couldn’t get to the front, prick her ears and re­lax.”
