Racing NSW to sell Flower’s Everest slot

Racing NSW will sell the forfeited slot for
this year’s $14 million The Everest (1200m)
previously owned by accused cocaine trafficker
Damion Flower’s Jadeskye Racing. The racing
authority’s board resolved to put the slot to tender
for the 2019 race but the successful bidder will
not necessarily be the one who offers the most money.

 

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