Eduardo for the Everest climb

The Joe Pride-trained Eduardo is headed to The $15m, TAB Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 17 with MiRunners selecting the seven-year-old gelding for their slot in the world’s richest race on turf after their original selection Rothfire suffered an injury in last Saturday’s Golden Rose.

Eduardo – currently $21 at TAB for The TAB Everest – has raced 15 times for five wins, three seconds and three thirds.

Eduardo is a dual Group 2 winner having saluted in the 2018 Caulfield Sprint and last August’s Missile Stakes at Rosehill and was placed at Group 1 level with a third in the 2019 Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield.

Eduardo finished second to Classique Legend in The Shorts over 1100 metres at Randwick on September 19.

TAB’s representative for The TAB Everest, Nature Strip, is currently the $3.50 favourite.
