Tabcorp Announces Everest Sponsorship
Tabcorp announced on Friday that it will partner with Racing NSW as major sponsor of The TAB Everest for the inaugural running of the $10 million sprint at Royal Randwick on 14 October. Tabcorp Chief Marketing Officer Claire Murphy said Tabcorp couldn't be more delighted in putting its TAB name to the biggest race of the Sydney Spring Carnival. "The Everest is an exciting concept and we're thrilled to support Racing NSW through our sponsorship of the big race. It is such a great opportunity for our brand," Claire said. Racing NSW Chief Executive Peter V'landys commented: "It's only fitting that Australia's largest wagering operator and the largest funder of Australian racing sponsors Australia's richest race." TAB customers have the chance to win an ownership opportunity with TAB's Everest runner, English. If the Gai Waterhouse-trained mare wins the race, 10 lucky customers will be $100,000 richer.
