Chautauqua has just trialled at Sydney. Stood in the gates and missed the start by 10 lengths then started running and finished 3rd by about half a length :roll: So suspect there will be more to come in the Chautauqua saga yet

Yahoo! I’ve been rooting for Whitmore to get his G1 win! He runs hard every race, this one set up really nice for him 🙂

Stewards have announced today that Chautauqua is banned from racing or trialling in Australia BUT have invited submissions from his many owners as to why he should be allowed to race so it's still not over :cry:

Is anyone listening to Chautauqua? Because I feel like he has already submitted his opinion. Several times. :roll:

The owners (& some social media) are saying that because he finished so well in the trial that he wants to continue racing :roll:

Stewards have just made a statement after hearing submissions from the owners of Chautauqua. In brief the Behaviourist (who remains unnamed) has said he needs more time to fix the horse so Stewards have said he is not to trial before Sept 22nd, he must trial satisfactorily on 2 consecutive occasions, should he refuse to trial or not show sufficient improvement his entries will then be refused.

So it still goes on.... :roll:

A gelding I love rooting for, Alert Bay, won the Rolling Green on Monday, his 15th win. This guy came back from a 1 year lay-off to run 2nd in the Longacres Mile last out. He does not quit!
