HOW THE MORT & CO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN WORKS

Inspired by the renowned "The Everest," which holds the title of the richest race on turf, this race promises excitement, prestige, and big rewards.

In the Mort & Co King of the Mountain Race, there will be a total of 12 slots available for purchase, each priced at $40,000. Slot holders have the unique opportunity to decide whether they want to enter their own horse in their allocated slot or engage in negotiations with other horse owners to secure a runner for their slot.

Ten (10) Slots are locked in on three (3) year contracts and the final two (2) race slots is auctioned off annually at our Launch Event meaning that each year there is a chance to be involved in the race by the winning bidder.

Once the slot and horse pairing are finalised, the involved parties come together to determine a prize money split that suits their agreement. This allows for flexibility and customization, ensuring fair and beneficial arrangements for all involved.

For a comprehensive understanding of the race guidelines and requirements, we encourage you to review the official race Terms & Conditions meticulously prepared by Racing Queensland. These conditions serve as the foundation for the race, ensuring transparency, integrity, and a level playing field for all participants.
