The Australian Turf Club Foundation will receive a $300,000 donation from the winning owner of the $15 million TAB Everest, Mr Boniface Ho.
Classique Legend won the world’s richest race on turf at Royal Randwick today after Mr Ho earlier this year bought the Australian Turf Club’s slot in a three deal.
The horse, which started favourite, continues the Australian Turf Club’s strong record in the race, following three consecutive placings before this year’s win for the Club’s slot.
Mr Ho had pledged to give 5 per cent of any prizemoney earned in today’s race to the ATC Foundation as part of his agreement, with today’s first prizemoney totalling $6.2 million.
ATC Foundation Chairman Phillip Morley thanked Mr Ho for his generosity.
“Mr Ho has been such a wonderful supporter of this race and continues at the same time to give back to the industry and charity,’’ Mr Morley said.
“The ATC Foundation will ensure these funds continue to help those in need.’’
Australian Turf Club Chief Executive Jamie Barkley said Mr Ho’s support of Sydney racing and The TAB Everest had been rewarded.
“We thank and congratulate Mr Ho, as well as his Royal Randwick trainer Les Bridge and jockey Kerrin McEvoy,’’ Mr Barkley said.
