The Everest slot holder James Harron has done a deal with Triple Crown Syndicates for Redzel to run in the $10 million race on October 14.
Harron, whose horses are trained by Peter and Paul Snowden, decided to go with stablemate Redzel, who becomes the sixth horse locked in for the 1200-metre race.
Triple Crown's Michael Ward was delighted to secure a slot. It means the son of Snitzel will run in Saturday's The Shorts and miss the group 1 Moir Stakes.
"He was only a $120,000 buy and the people that are in would not even dream of running in a race like this," Ward said. "It didn't exist, so it is a dream result.
"It is a fantastic opportunity for us and he is just getting better every preparation.
