Australia’s richest race day set to thrill fans on Seven with the THE EVERST and CAULFIELD CUP

Two of thoroughbred racing’s most glittering prizes are up for grabs on Seven this Saturday, with fans set to enjoy all the tension, drama and excitement of the world’s richest race on turf, The Everest, and the internationally renowned Caulfield Cup.

On the Spring Racing Carnival’s richest day, there will be an unmistakable buzz around Randwick when 12 of the nation’s best sprinters line up in The Everest to stake their claims for the 1200m feature’s unparalleled $15 million prize money.

Nature Strip will be hoping to re-establish himself as Australia’s premier sprinter after a disappointing start to his spring campaign, but the star gelding’s bid to claim the prestigious Everest trophy will face stiff opposition from in-form sprinters such as Classique Legend, Gytrash, Libertini, Behemoth and Bivouac.

At Caulfield, a star-studded field will contest one of the most coveted staying events in the world, the $5 million Caulfield Cup (2400m). Star mare Verry Elleegant will start as one of the favourites after her classy Turnbull Stakes victory, but faces a host of challengers led by Master of Wine, Dalasan, Finche, and Irish raiders Anthony Van Dyck and Buckhurst.

Australia’s pre-eminent broadcaster Bruce McAvaney will again lead racing’s undisputed No.1 team on Saturday, which also features Hamish McLachlan, Michelle Payne and prominent Victorian trainer Henry Dwyer at Caulfield, along with Gerard Middleton, Katelyn Mallyon and Richard Freedman at Randwick.

Once again bringing fans all the news and interviews will be racing’s best trackside reporters, Jason Richardson at Caulfield and Sky Racing’s Lizzie Jelfs at Randwick, while Emma Vosti and Kate Waterhouse will also be at Caulfield and Randwick respectively to keep viewers across all the latest fashions and styles around the course.

Racing fans can keep across all the action on the @7HorseRacing social pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, while they can also look forward to the following marquee meetings on Seven later this month:

  • October 24 – Moonee Valley: Cox Plate Day; Randwick: Bondi Stakes Day
