Trainer John O’Shea has never hid his admiration for Lost And Running and his faith in the untapped sprinter has been justified with TAB securing the four-year-old for the 2021 running of the TAB Everest.
“Lost And Running is far and away the best sprinter I have trained,” said O’Shea, who has also saddled up Astern, Sea Siren, Foxwedge and Exosphere in the past.
“The group who own him have owned some serious racehorses over their time, but I’ve never seen a group of people so excited when we announced we’d teamed with TAB for this year’s TAB Everest.”
The speedy gelding has raced just seven times for six wins and a narrow second placing, with his most recent start producing a dominant win in the Listed Luskin Star Stakes, a race both Trekking and Osborne Bulls have used in the past to perform well in October’s $15 million feature.
Tabcorp Managing Director Wagering and Media, Adam Rytenskild said, “We are delighted to have secured the services of Australia’s most exciting sprinter for what has rapidly risen to become the world’s richest and most competitive sprint race.
“TAB is proud to have been associated with the Everest since the first running and think we have secured the right horse to win it. We look forward to sharing the ride with our customers as we count down to the big race at Randwick on October 16.”
