Group One winning mare Tofane has gained a slot in this years $15m The Everest at Randwick.
The Mike Moroney trained mare has secured a spot in The Everest after a deal was done with slot holder Yu Long Investments.
Tofane was the winner of this years Group One All Aged Stakes beating G1 winning sprinters Pierata, Super Seth, Bivouac and Santa Ana Lane.
“It’s a big thrill for us to partner with Yulong on this,” Moroney said. “Mr Zhang purchased our Group 1 winner Alabama Express earlier this year and he is just starting his stud career for him here in Victoria and I’m sure Tofane will do us all proud.”
Moroney said Tofane has come out of her first-up run in last Saturday’s Bobbie Lewis Quality at Flemington in great shape.
“I was more than satisfied with her effort under the circumstances,” Moroney said. “She had top-weight, the race wasn’t really run to suit so I thought for her to be beaten under half a length was an excellent run.
“She won the All Aged Stakes at Randwick in April after good efforts in the Galaxy and the T J Smith and she beat Gytrash home over 1200 metres in Adelaide last year so she deserves a crack at a race like The Everest.”
