Chautauqua Third In Trial

Wednesday, 1st February 2017

Meanwhile, star sprinter Chautauqua (Encosta de Lago-Lovely Jubly, by Lion Hunter) has pleased Team Hawkes finishing third in a Rosehill barrier trial in Sydney yesterday. The 5-time Gr1 winner, who was last week crowned the World's Best Sprinter for 2016, cruised to the line under a strong hold to finish within a length of dual Group-winning and Gr1-placed stable-mate Star Turn over 900 metres in a time of 55.10 seconds. Trainer Michael Hawkes, who prepares the grey flash in partnership with father John and brother Wayne, has previously confirmed Chautauqua will be aimed at a defence of his three 2016 Gr1 titles, namely the Gr1 Lightning Stakes, Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes, and the Gr1 Chairman's Sprint Prize in Hong Kong in May.
