Last years Schillaci Stakes winner Ball Of Muscle

The Melbourne Racing Club is thrilled to partner with the Australian Turf Club for a slot in the $14m The TAB Everest.

The collaboration creates a prime opportunity to combine the fast-growing Everest with the long-standing tradition of the Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival to make Caulfield Cup/Everest Race Day one of the premier events on the global racing calendar.

For the first time ever, MRCโ€™s new Everest slot will adopt a racing series concept culminating in the $400,000 Group 2 WFA (1100m) Schillaci Stakes winner on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day receiving our Everest slot.

The lead-up to the Schillaci Stakes will include three qualifying races, developing a strong racing and promotional campaign leading into the Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival:

Race Day Date Status Type Race Dist
PB Lawrence Stakes Day 17 Aug Listed Open Hcp Regal Roller Stakes 1200
Moรซt & Chandon Memsie Stakes Day 31 Aug Group 3 Open SWP The Heath 1100 1100
Hyland Race Colours Underwood Stakes Day 29 Sep Listed Open Hcp Testa Rossa Stakes 1200

โ€œWe believe that forging a partnership of this kind with the Australian Turf Club around the Everest and the Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival will generate significant interest and value for Australian racing as a whole,โ€ Melbourne Racing Club, Chief Executive Officer Josh Blanksby said.

โ€œFrom an MRC perspective, connecting the Schillaci to the Everest, will see an increased interest in racing on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day โ€“ as well as the lead-up races preceding it.

โ€œThis concept breaks down barriers by fostering collaboration, embracing two great racing carnivals to benefit the entire industry, our members, participants, fans and punters.โ€

โ€œThe MRC is and always has been a forward-thinking club that looks for ways to embrace the competition to the benefit of our members and the sport of horse racing generally,โ€ Melbourne Racing Club Chairman, Peter Le Grand said.

โ€œThe Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival is one of the greatest carnivals in world racing and this new partnership gives a unique angle for 2019 which will make it the most exciting edition yet.โ€
