The Everest will not only be Australia’s richest race, it will also figure as the world’s richest turf race and third overall behind the Pegasus World Cup (1810m) in the United States and the Dubai World Cup (2000m).

The changes to the Sydney Spring Carnival program are centred primarily on three-year-old events and middle-distance weight-for-age races, while a further $2 million in prize money on top of the lucrative prize pool for The Everest will be injected into the carnival.

ATC Chairman Lauri Macri said that the changes in programming and prize money will benefit a host of connections, trainers and horses targeting feature races later in the carnival.

“The Sydney Spring Carnival continues to deliver racing of the highest quality and these program improvements will provide enhanced opportunities for connections with horses in sprinting, middle distance and staying categories,” Macri said on a Racing NSW media statement.

“The revised three-year-old program in particular is very exciting as it presents a more streamlined pathway towards the Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose. This also allows a better progression for three-year-old sprinter-milers aimed at feature races in Melbourne later in spring.”

The changes to dates and prize money for the 2017 Sydney Spring Carnival are as follows:

Prizemoney Changes

  • The Rosebud $150,000 (previously $100,000)
  • Premiere Stakes $500,000 (previously $200,000)
  • Hill Stakes $500,000 (previously $200,000)
  • Craven Plate $500,000 (previously $125,000)

    What you published was actually very logical. However, think about this,
    what if you were to create a killer post title? I mean, I don’t want to
    tell you how to run your website, but what if you
    added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Changes to Sydney Spring Carnival Dates & Prize Money Confirmed –
    HorseRacing.com.au is a little vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and watch how they write article titles to get viewers interested.

    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to
    grab people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a
    little livelier.
