HK Star Classique Legend Confirmed For The Everest 2019
Bon Ho & Carmel Size Racing have purchased the vacant GPI Racing slot for the 2019 running of The Everest. They have confirmed that Bon Ho's Les Bridge-trained 3YO Classique Legend will fill the slot for The Everest.
The sale of the GPI Racing slot attracted global interest from the outset owner Greg Ingham announced he was selling it for the 2019 renewal of the race.
“The decision to aim Classique Legend at the Everest later this year should be seen as a vote of confidence in the Australian racing industry, with special acknowledgment to Racing NSW who have developed the initiative,’’ Size said.
“Mr Bon Ho is a devotee of racing and as much as he would love to see his horse winning in Hong Kong, he is relishing the challenge of tackling the best in The Everest.
Racing NSW CEO Peter V’Landys was excited about the prospect of The Everest slots becoming trade-able whilst welcoming Carmel Size and Bon Ho into The Everest slot-holder's group.
