A bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest sounds like ancient Aztec gods have begun staking geography on unknown wagers twixt themselves however the truth is far less troublesome. This October the inaugural running of The Everest will take place in Sydney, Australia, and Chautauqua is currently the favorite to win it at Bet365, so we’re taking a closer look at this new event.
Richest Horse Races In The World
• Pegasus World Cup – Florida, USA – Dirt – US$12m
• Dubai World Cup – Dubai, UAE – Dirt – US$10m
• The Everest – Sydney, Australia – Turf – AUD$10m
When Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of the highest peak in the world and stood atop the Himalayas little did they know just how deep into the psyche of the British that achievement would seep gaining its own niche in the lexicon of language itself. This goes some way toward explaining why this year, for the first time ever, you can bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest which is inaugurated this year and will become the lynch-pin event in the Spring Festival in Sydney.
Announced by Racing New South Wales earlier this year The Everest will be a 1,200m sprint at the right handed Randwick Racecourse for thoroughbreds on a weight-for-age basis which doesn’t instantly bring to mind the snowy slopes of Nepal, however the fact that this will be the richest turf race in the world does. If you like to bet on sports in Australia this is going to be a highlight of the year and a bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest at Bet365 might just brighten up your bankroll in the process.
The Richest Horse Race On Turf In The World Comes To Australia
The Everest 2017
• Is a bet on Chautauqua to win the Everest safe at 4/1?
• Should you back She Will Reign at 6/1 instead?
• Will 8/1 shot Winx turn up to race at all in Sydney?
Of course I do have issue with naming a horse race on the flat after the world’s highest mountain, but I make allowances as the Pegasus World Cup and Dubai World Cup might well have a little more prize money about the place (Dubai is the same amount but in USD, Pegasus has $12m) however they’re both run on dirt tracks, and the green turf of Sydney will attract a great selection of horses which means that if you don’t fancy a bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest there’s plenty of others to choose from.
Notable She Will Reign which gets a rather tasty 6/1 at Bet365 right now not too far behind the 4/1 you can get for a bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest. There’s 8/1 to be found on Winx, but there’s rumors it won’t show up at all, with Astern and Battaash both getting 10/1 just a nose ahead of Caravaggio at 12/1 alongside Flying Artie. If you’re going to take advantage of Australian gambling laws to put a bet on The Everest but don’t want to back the favorite, either of those is a great each way wager.
Bet On Chautauqua To Win The Everest At Bet365

• Randwick Racecourse
• Length – 1,200m
• Field – 12 Slots
• Prizes – AUD$10m
Further down the field of this, the first running of The Everest, you’ll find Star Turn at 14/1, Vega Magic, Spieth, Extreme Choise and Menari all at 16/1 with Russian Revolution, and if you insist on something so far removed from a bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest at Bet365 that binoculars would need be employed to see you from that sensible position, why not try Under The Louvre at 100/1 or the perhaps entirely aptly named horse Supido at the same odds. You really would have to be supido.
Naturally there’s huge interest in seeing what famously fleet of foot Aussie sprinters do when they’ve not needed to travel into the Northern Hemisphere to show it, and that massive prize is going to attract some very interesting entrants over the next few years, sure, a bet on Chautauqua to win The Everest at Bet365 might not be the most adventurous wager in the world, the win unlikely to make Australian gambling news headlines, but at least you can say you had money on the very first one they ever ran.
