Arrowfield & Star Plan Everest Assault

Twelve quickies vie for A$15 million in prize money

The Star Entertainment Group and breeding powerhouse Arrowfield Stud have announced a partnership to run as joint slot holders for The Everest – the world’s richest race on turf – from 2021 to 2024.

Sydney’s Royal Randwick hosts the world’s richest race on turf on Saturday, 16 October 2021.

History will be made as twelve of the fastest horses compete for A$15 million in prize money.

In joining forces to create a unique slot combination, The Star and Arrowfield are well-positioned to challenge for their first success in the A$15 million classic over the next four years.

“As a founding slot holder of The Everest, The Star is thrilled to extend to 2024 its commitment to a race that has changed the racing landscape,” said Matt Bekier, CEO and Managing Director of The Star Entertainment Group.

“The Everest drew immediate interest from the domestic and international racing community. Just as importantly, it captivated the hearts and minds of the public in next to no time… We’re delighted to have established a long-term partnership with the leading Australian-owned stud.”

Arrowfield Group Chairman, John Messara, pictured above, said, “We are excited to join The Star in a shared quest to win The Everest. We bring complementary skills to our partnership, the race is an irresistible challenge for both of us, and we look forward to contesting it together.”

The Star Entertainment Group has a long history of supporting the racing fraternity in Sydney through its associations with the Australian Turf Club (ATC)  and in Queensland via Magic Millions.

Following a renewed three-year partnership deal in 2020, The Star remains a Foundation Partner and the Official Entertainment Partner of the ATC while extending its commitment to naming rights partner of the prestigious Sydney Autumn Carnival – The Star Championships at Royal Randwick.
