    Date For The Messara Report Release

    Agree with you Trumpy. Messara can only do the spadework and make the necessary recommendations. What happens then is out of his hands, but we will see if Peters bluster translates into some positive action for the NZ Racing Industry. Why on Earth this is being done at Claudelands rather than Te Rapa or Ellerslie is another question.

    Yes will be interesting to see if Avilius backs up that first up performance RR. I see Robert Hickmott has picked up a German 3yo named Schabau who has won his last two starts impressively and intending to race him in Australia with a view to the big races down the track if he measures up. Not sure if Lloyd Williams is involved in this. Nice turn of foot in this win.

    Chautauqua....has he had enough....???

    Someone has been treating him obviously....they won't give up easily clearly. On Tuesday Racing NSW stewards issued a release declaring Chautuaqua would trial on Saturday at Rosehill during the San Domenico Stakes meeting. The statement read: Racing NSW Stewards have given consideration to an application from the connections of Chautauqua, represented by Mr Rupert Legh, to permit the gelding to barrier trial in an attempt to be passed to race again. In making the application, the connections have provided the following submissions; 1. The gelding has been placed under the care of a well-respected thoroughbred behaviourist and has responded well to his methods; 2. The Stewards have received evidence of Chautauqua on 16, 17, 20 and 21 August 2018 completing a number of jump outs conducted at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, whereby he jumped satisfactory on all occasions, including before ATC Starter, Mr Dale Jeffs, this morning, and; 3. An application was made to allow Chautauqua to compete in an official barrier trial to be conducted between races at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, 25 August 2018, to simulate raceday conditions. After giving consideration to the submissions, the Stewards have permitted Chautauqua to barrier trial in an open raceday barrier trial to be conducted at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, 25 August 2018, on the following conditions; 1. Chautauqua be required to barrier trial to the satisfaction of the Stewards in two consecutive official barrier trials prior to being given permission to race again, and; 2. Should the gelding refuse to jump from the barriers in any of those official barrier trials, then Racing NSW Stewards would refuse the nominations of the gelding from barrier trials and races under the provisions of AR50. In allowing Chautauqua to barrier trial again, the Stewards were mindful of the submissions made by connections and were encouraged by the gelding satisfactorily jumping from the barriers in numerous jump outs. In addition, the Stewards were conscious of providing every opportunity to the connections of Chautauqua to enable the gelding to return to racing and are satisfied on the available evidence that recent failures to begin from the barriers are related to behavioural issues and not a veterinary condition that is causing the gelding to remain in the barriers. The barrier trial will be conducted over 1000m between races 3 and 4 and nominations will close at 1pm on Wednesday, 22 August 2018. The field will be restricted to eight runners to be determined by Racing NSW. The confirmation of an official trial came after Wayne Hawkes declared Chautauqua had been flying out of the gates in unofficial jump outs.

    Amazing run. He looked to have no hope over the last but found like the Champ he is....
  7. "Lack of effort" would be putting it mildly....did he think it was a trial, or take the trainers " give him an easy one" too literally.....? https://www.racenet.com.au/news/things-that-make-punters-go-hmmm-20180820

    Unbelievable What a Champion

    Think you might be right there Basil, as will Libran who came home second fastest 600/400 in the race. Watched the race again and Winx was just incredible. Ran her last 600m in 32.33 and last 400m in 21.27... When she is running those times, the others need a fair start to beat her......

    Just been reading about that RR. Don't know that he beat much but five in a row takes some doing at any level. https://www.racinguk.com/news/hamada-set-for-melbourne-cup-trip-following-newbury-victory

    Would have to come from left field RR..nothing we've seen so far. Humidor pushed her close last year and Weir has some nice types.
