Eduardo has secured his third shot at the $15m TAB Everest but for the first time trainer Joe Pride can start his preparation knowing he doesn’t have to prove he deserves his place.

Yulong Investments, who celebrated Everest success in 2018 with Redzel running in its slot, has given Pride the license to prepare the rising nine-year-old to peak on October 15.

Pride is adamant Eduardo, having only raced 27 times, still has a peak performance in him and if he can produce that on Everest Day he will go a long way to finally downing defending champ Nature Strip at the Randwick 1200m.

“There’s no need to think he hasn’t got possibly the best run of his career still in him,’’ Pride said.

“I’ve had plenty of horses over the years that have had their best performances beyond that position of their career. There’s no reason why he can’t do that as well, he’s an amazing horse.

“These two horses have been at amazing level now for a couple of years.

“There’s been some contenders come along through that period but very few horses have been able to beat them.”

In his two Everest attempts to date, Eduardo has finished 11th behind Classique Legend in 2020 and third behind Nature Strip and Masked Crusader last year.

Troy Stephens, the Racing, Sales and Nominations Manager for Yulong, said Eduardo has been consistently one of the best sprinters in Australia and all concerned are rapt to have him secured early.

“We know the standard of performance that Eduardo can deliver on his day and can’t wait to see him step out this Spring,” Stephens said.

“He’s currently spelling in Queensland and will follow a traditional lead-up path to the race, so that gives us confidence he’ll get the right preparation to succeed.”
