Nature Strip is the first horse into the field for the $15 million The TAB Everest – again. “When I think Nature Strip is the best sprinter in Australia it is my job to promote the horse to my slot-holders. He ran fourth in 2019 behind stablemate, the three-year-old Yes Yes Yes and then seventh to Classique Legend last year. “We take an abundance of joy out of racing Nature Strip and being a part of Chris’ team, it was an apt decision to align with his slot for 2021,’’ Lyons said. “Nature Strip has again showed us his capabilities as Australia’s best sprinter this Autumn, and we eagerly await The Everest in October”.
