How old is Chautauqua now? Could he have decided that racing is no longer something he wants to do? :?
Refusing to break...twice...sure looks like the horse has made his opinion known. :P

Chautauqua was foaled September 20, 2010. I'm not sure what to make of that funny look on his face, ears straight up.

He's more interested in the camera person than the horses that have stampeded away from the gate. Rather interesting for a herd animal. . .

LOL...horses, gotta love 'em.

The reason behind Chautauqua's stubborn showing
All eyes will be on champion sprinter Chautauqua come 8:51am at Warwick Farm on Monday, as he seeks to confirm he can resume in Saturday's Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m).

But his owner Rupert Legh explained what actually happened in the gates at Randwick last Tuesday, when Chautauqua was left in the stalls in back-to-back trials which left stewards to demand he trial to their satisfaction prior to his autumn resumption.

"It's a funny one - we all have bad hair days, don't we?" Legh told RSN 927's Talking Horses on Sunday morning.

"I think it's the best photograph of all, from Gai Waterhouse's photographer.

"He's looking at the camera - and that camera would not normally be there on raceday, or on any day when they have trials.

"If there's a camera, it's normally to the right, when they jump out the Sydney way of going.

"But this camera is to his left, he's got his eyes square on the camera as if to say, 'You shouldn't be there, and I'm not jumping out of these gates'.

"It's the best photo you'll ever see.

"He's such a peculiar animal, if you change things for him, he loses it - he gets pretty cranky, he's got a mind of his own.

"I think it's a combination of two things - one, the photographer. People might laugh, but that's just the quirky nature of the horse.

"And secondly, he'd never been to Randwick in his life to have a jump-out or a trial, he's in a different part of the track, and he was looking around. It was one of those days that wasn't normal to him.

"So he decided I'm not jumping out, this just isn't right.

"Since then, the horse has been out of the gates, and not a problem at all... we're putting it down to one of those days, with a combination of a few things, and hopefully tomorrow morning, he jumps out and gives the people some peace in the mind that all's well with him to get him to the Canterbury Stakes on Saturday."

Chautauqua is down to trial in heat number four at 8:51am, with jockey Brenton Avdulla to guide him in the 800m trial. The mighty grey trialled beautifully the same track/trip on February 15.
