Slot Holder: Max Whitby
Breeding: Street Cry-Outdoor
Trainer: James Cummings
Stradbroke and Goodwood winner Trekking will give Godolphin a second runner in the $15 million TAB Everest, running in the slot owned by Max Whitby, Neil Werrett, Steve McCann and Colin Madden.
“To have two horses in a race like this is always going to be a great thing,” Cummings said, who will also saddle up Bivouac.
“But this a lot more than merely having two horses in The Everest, this is a case of having two horses in the race that we believe can win it.”
For Whitby, racing a horse of Trekking’s calibre in partnership with Godolphin in a race like The Everest is a highlight of his years in racing.
“It’s not many times in your racing life that you can be partnering with a leading worldwide group like Godolphin,” Whitby said.
“We are very proud to partner with their champion Trekking, a horse who’s a multiple Group One winner and was third in last year’s Everest.”
For Trekking, his Everest place offers a second chance at victory after his third in 2019.
