Discussions between slot holders and connections of star sprinter Nature Strip have been halted with the two parties unable to agree to a fair prize money split.
Nature Strip who sits at the head of current Everest candidates has not secured a slot in October’s $13m Everest at Randwick with slot holders and connections unable to agree on a fair split of the prize money.
Part Owner Rod Lyons had hoped a deal would be secured by now although discussions have been called off between all three slot holders.
Nature Strip is an $8 chance with most bookmakers despite having not secured a slot in the race.

Nature Strip Everest deal OFF for the time being.
Rod Lyons spoke @RadioTABAus this AM
“we’ve had contact from all three slot holders, we thought a deal would be locked away yesterday afternoon, but… it’s not as straight forward as it may seem.
All to do with the $$ split.
