The racing public knew it was only a matter of time until the two flying sprinters; Redkirk Warrior and Vega Magic received slots for the Everest.

 

Late last night (Thursday) it was confirmed that the Crown entertainment group, who had the choice of the Hayes, Hayes and Dabernig runners, have selected last year’s emphatic Newmarket winner Redkirk Warrior to represent them in the first running of the richest race on turf.

 

Within a matter of hours, slot holder Max Whitby has snapped up Vega Magic. Who has undoubtedly been one of the form sprinters of the early spring.

 

After this news Redkirk Warrior has firmed from $11 into $9 for the 1200m event, whilst Vega Magic has held his call at $6.50. 

 

On paper, this leaves only 2 slots remaining. However, trainer Toby Edmonds has previously confirmed that there is a chance Houtzen may pull out of the Aquis Farm slot if she does not run up to her $1.65 quote in tonight’s Scarborough Plate at Moonee Valley.

 

After a huge weekend of racing coming up one would imagine a full field will take shape sometime next week.

 

Runners to watch include Russian Revolution who lines up in the Group 1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley Friday night (now interestingly out to $13 for the Everest), whilst Clearly Innocent ($26 for the Everest) and In Her Time ($51 for the Everest) are out to lay their claims in the Premier Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.
