“People who have never watched racing before are watching [The Everest]” Williams said. “Five years in, you can see how much promotion is going into it and racing is thriving. People are seeing the love we have for the equine athletes and what goes into it. It’s another great story.”

Everest has 12 slotholders, including ultra-wealthy individuals such as Hong Kong businessman Bon Ho and UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, as well as ASX-listed Tabcorp – brokering deals with horse owners to represent them on Everest.

Each slot holder is paid $600,000 a year to own the starting position. Charon’s investment proved to be a wise one as he teamed up with owners Giga Kick to climb the mountain for a second time, picking Redel’s first winner in 2017.

“There was a lot of pressure [choosing Giga Kick], but we like the profile of the three-year-olds in the race,” he said. “It’s a dream that he’s able to come up with and do it like that.”
