FARNAN SET FOR THE EVEREST CHALLENGE
by Paul Vettise
Top colt Farnan (Not A Single Doubt) will be given the opportunity to create racing history with confirmation he will race in the slot held by part-owner Aquis in next month's $15 million The Everest.
Farnan produced a commanding performance to claim last season=s G1 Golden Slipper S. at Randwick where Oct. 17 he will attempt to become the first winner of the 2-year-old feature to add The Everest to his record.
Last year=s winner Yes Yes Yes, now resident at Coolmore, was unplaced in the Golden Slipper before he added his name to the roll of honour alongside Redzel (Snitzel), successful in the first two editions of the race in 2017 and 2018.
Farnan will represent Aquis, Phoenix Thoroughbreds and Kia Ora Stud, who bought into the colt last month with part of the arrangement giving the Hunter Valley operation future standing rights.
