Coolmore is hoping lightning can strike twice in the TAB Everest with three-year-old Home Affairs given the job of repeating the 2019 victory of Yes Yes Yes in next the $15m classic at Randwick.
Yes Yes Yes was trained by Chris Waller and Glen Boss rode him to a track record breaking win so Coolmore is putting its faith in that combination.
The Silver Slipper winner showed he’d returned in outstanding order winning the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) in September and confirmed his selection with an impressive exhibition gallop with stablemate Nature Strip.
“Chris and his team have done an unbelievable job with this horse,’’ Magnier said.
“He was a good two-year-old and he’s come out at three and really filled into himself.
“We’ve had Yes Yes Yes as a three-year-old in the Everest with Chris and Glen Boss so really we’re just trying to repeat the formula that worked.”
Home Affairs will be the second Coolmore representative to carry the navy colours in the TAB Everest and the second three-year-old after Tulip finished fifth in the inaugural running in 2017.
Yes Yes Yes is the only three-year-old so far to win the TAB Everest – he was successful in 2019 in the Chris Waller Racing slot as Coolmore imported Aidan O’Brien’s Group 1 winning colt Ten Sovereigns to be its representative.
“We have a really exciting sprinter on our hands,” Magnier said.
“I know it is a big ask for a three-year-old to come up against the best sprinters in the world but Chris has faith in the horse and we just need a bit of luck on the day.”
