Potential Owners “Knocking Down Doors” for Vacant 2019 Everest Slot


The Everest slot surrendered by Jadeskye Racing & leviathan owner Damion Flower has been put up for tender but will not necessarily be awarded to the bidder who offers the most money.

Racing New South Wales on Thursday announced that the slot made available following the arrest of Damion Flower on drug smuggling charges would be put to market.

Flower forfeited his The Everest slot for this year’s $14 million race, run at Randwick on October 19, when he was arrested and charged for his alleged role in a drug importation ring.

The high-profile owner had paid the $600,000 for The Everest slot this year and had taken up the option for 2020.

Racing NSW will make no decision on the 2020 The Everest slot until it learns the outcome of court proceedings against Flower.

But it will go to the ‘person or organisation that brings benefit and adds to the promotion and appeal of the race which has captured everyone’s attention’.

Racing NSW CEO Peter V’landys said, “The slot has attracted many interested parties who are willing to pay the amount necessary.

“The challenge for them is how they can show that they will bring something unique to The Everest. We have already done a Barrier Draw on the Opera House, so you can rule that out.”

Whoever secures the rights to the vacated slot, which is just for 2019 with no accompanying option for future years, will receive the right to nominate a horse for The Everest on October 19 and a share in the prizemoney of that horse. The tender process closes at 4pm on Friday, July 12.

Seven of the 12 Everest slots have been taken, with two-time champion Redzel the most recent to be snapped up when taken by Yulong Investments. The slot for tender is just one of five remaining positions in the 12-horse field. The occupied places in the field are:

10 Best Horse Racing Movies Ever: Ride Like a Girl – The Michelle Payne Story

In what’s promising the be one of the best horse racing, if not sports movies in general, ever made, judging off the two trailers that have been released to date, Ride Like A Girl, is set to hit the big screens this September, ride in the midst of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival / Melbourne Cup, in which jockey Michelle Payne, in 2015, wrote her name forever into Australian cultural folklore beccomming the first ever female jockey to win “The Race that Stops the Nation” the Melbourne Cup.

Our tip for this movie is that’ll it’ll be a classic & a box-office smash!

Transmission Films has dropped a new trailer for Rachel Griffiths’ directed, Michelle Payne biopic Ride Like A Girl.


As a little girl, Michelle Payne (Teresa Palmer) dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup — horse-racing’s toughest two-mile race.

The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy (Sam Neill). She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream.

But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, Michelle will not give up. Against all the medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history.


Directed by Rachel Griffiths, Ride Like a Girl stars Teresa Palmer, Sam Neill, Stevie Payne, Sullivan Stapleton and Genevieve Morris.

Ride Like a Girl is in cinemas from September 26, 2019.
