Group 1-winning mare English has been named as the fifth runner to contest The Everest.
The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained four-year-old has been selected by TAB to represent their slot in the the $10 million race, which will be held at Randwick on October 14.
English joins Chautauqua, Houtzen, She Will Reign and Fell Swoop as horses to be confirmed to tackle the inaugural running of the 1200m WFA race.
"With English in our corner we think we have a great chance of being part of history and winning the inaugural race," Tabcorp Chief Operating Officer – Wagering and Media Craig Nugent said.
"Importantly for TAB, there is natural alignment with English's owners given the team at Newhaven Park Stud is also actively involved in running some of Sydney's biggest PubTABs.
"We have been working closely with English's connections and will unveil some exciting initiatives for our customers in the build up to The Everest."
A daughter of Encosta de Lago, English has amassed more than $2.5 million in earnings, having won five starts, including last year’s G1 All Aged Stakes. The mare also finished a narrow second to Chautauqua in the G1 TJ Smith Stakes in April.
