Triple Crown Syndications and Yulong Investments Australia announced on Saturday evening that they have agreed to partner again with Redzel for the 2019 The Everest (1200m) at Randwick in October as they did in 2018.
The Peter & Paul Snowden trained sprinter won the first two runnings of the world's richest race on turf and in 2019 he will attempt to make it a remarkable three-peat.
Triple Crown's Chris Ward said "The Everest is now established as the premier sprint race in the world and to be fortunate enough to have won this race two times already has just blown our minds." This year's edition sees its prizemoney climb even higher to an incredible $14,000,000 and another win would take Redzel's career earnings soaring past $21.6m.
"We are forever grateful to have had the opportunity to partake in this amazing race, let alone win it twice. The journey and experiences that we have shared with our owners, Kerrin, Peter and Paul and indeed the whole Snowden Racing staff, have been out of this world." Ward said.
Ward added, "Yulong do deserve their success and it was very satisfying to team up with them last year and help them achieve the pinnacle of Australian racing. That sort of success can only help solidify their love and involvement in Australian racing and it is only fitting to join forces again in 2019."
