Champion trainer Peter Snowden describes scaling The Everest… again

Winning The Everest trainer Peter Snowden says he wasn’t at all nervous watching his horse Redzel take home the prestigious race for a second consecutive year.

The gelding picked up a further $6 million for winning the world’s richest race on turf, taking his total earnings to more than $15 million.

Peter tells Alan Jones he was “quietly confident” they could go back-to-back.

“I wasn’t running, It was pretty easy for me.

“I wasn’t worried anywhere really.

“Once the gates opened he started to control the speed from about the 1000-metre mark onwards.”

Alan played the race back to Peter who says it still gives him chills.

“The hairs go up on the back of your neck again. Tremendous day.”
