Peter Snowden and Kerrin McEvoy : What’s next for Redzel?

The controversy and dreary weather failed to dampen racegoers spirits with a record crowd turning up for The Everest, the richest turf race in the world on the weekend.

40,578 people attended the race, that’s up from 33,512 last year, with police and NSW Racing Authorities forced to close the gates at Royal Randwick before Redzel won his second Everest in a row.

Still on a high after going back to back in the $13 million race, Mark Levy and Richard Callander spoke with Redzel trainer Peter Snowden and winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy on the breakfast show this morning and asked whether everyone involved in the champion racehorse have stopped celebrating yet?

“It’s great to see that enjoyment, they are really good people, and they were good before the horse was going well too, so it’s not like they’ve changed, they’re racing purists and they’re very grateful that they’ve got such a great little champion”.

And they couldn’t be happier for the owners. So what’s next for for the 6 year old gelding?

Snowden assured Levy and Callander that team Redzel will just enjoy the win and to figure out what’s next, saying,

“We’ll never go greedy with him, we’ll just take our time and give him a month in between runs to trial him and that should have him back right where we want him again come Emirates Day”.

All eyes will be on whether the champion bay will now take Melbourne Spring racing carnival by storm in November.
