Viddora and Santa Ana Lane crunched in Everest betting

| October 3, 2018

Viddora wins the G1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley on AFL Grand Final Eve.

The Everest is due to be run on Saturday 13th October with a staggering $13 million in prizemoney. On AFL Grand Final eve, approximately two weeks before the running of the rich event, Viddora scored a dominant victory in the Group One AJ Moir Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley.

Viddora came from sixth on the corner to register an easy win. It was a significant victory for jockey Joe Bowditch who has moved to Caulfield from South Australia.

Trainer Lloyd Kennewell said he has an Everest slot holder very interested with the view of Viddora representing them in the richest turf race in the world.

An entry slot into The Everest costs owners of each horse $600,000 and there are only 12 slots, with $6M going to the winner.

The Dubai World Cup by comparison will race for $USD$12M next year, USD$7.2M going to the winner.

Tonight’s win by Viddora was her second at the elite level. She won the Winterbottom Stakes at Ascot last December.

Viddora is a daughter of I Am Invincible and has won over $2.4 million already in prizemoney.

After contesting The Everest, Viddora may go on to target the G1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley and the Darley Classic (1200m) down the Flemington straight.

Last year’s Everest winner Redzel successfully achieved The Everest – Darley Classic spring sprint double.

If you’re considering placing a bet, you’d be well placed to take up one of the many betting promotions on offer.

Big bets have come in for Trapeze Artist and international raider US Navy Flag while last weekend’s Premiere Stakes winner Santa Ana Lane was crunched this week and has joined Vega Magic on the top line of betting. Viddora is currently showing odds of $11.00 at BetEasy.

All The Everest discussion are currently ongoing in the village forums. The hope is that the race attracts many more than the 33,000 who attended the inaugural event last year.
