Arrowfield Stud and Pinecliff Racing’s three-time Group 1-winning filly Shoals (Aus) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) will race for slot holder The Star Entertainment Group in the A$13-million The Everest on Oct. 13.

“Like The Everest, The Star offers a premium entertainment experience for visitors to Sydney, and with three Group 1 victories on her record, Shoals has the kind of star power that can light up Royal Randwick,” said Arrowfield’s John Messara. “Jonathan [Munz of Pinecliff Racing] and I are delighted to conclude an arrangement with The Star for Shoals to run in The Everest. We think she is a great chance to win the race and we’re all looking forward to her return in the Spring.”

Shoals is one of just five horses in Australia this season to win three of more Group 1s. She took the G1 Myer Classic in November, followed by the G1 Surround S. and the G1 Robert Sangster S. in the autumn.

“We’re excited to be fielding a runner this year in partnership with Arrowfield’s John Messara,” said Michael Hodgson, GM Business Development and Partnerships at The Star Entertainment Group. “He’s one of the most knowledgeable and esteemed racing men in the world, and in Shoals we believe we have an outstanding filly capable of claiming the event.”
