Was that the race where #8 ran off beforehand, delaying the start by about fifteen minutes?

Fashion Business is a GELDING? :shock:
Wow...for them to snip a Frankel colt who is out of G1 winner Icon Project (Empire Maker), he must have been a very, very bad boy. :oops:

An update on Chautauqua: He had a jumpout at Flemington in early July then came back to Sydney to trial two weeks later and ... stood in the gates. They had several successful jumpouts then another trial 2 or 3 weeks later and .... stood in the gates. He has jumped out 4 or 5 times since then in the presence of stewards and now the stewards have given permission for him to trial between the races at Sydney this Saturday (aka D-Day) from the sounds of it if he doesn't jump then the stewards will not accept any entries for him on trial or raceday which will mean the stewards will have forcibly retired him.
Chautauqua is a 8yo he has had vets go over him carefully and there is nothing physically wrong with him. Animal behaviourists have studied him and given their advice that the trainers have followed carefully. When he gallops he looks as good as ever. The owner insists he is fine and just playing games but we will all see on Saturday

Have those 'Animal behaviourists' and Chautauqua's connections considered the possibility that the big grey is strongly expressing his own opinion about whether he races...or not? :oops:
Maybe he's rather spend his days grazing or visiting kids in hospitals? ;)

From everything reported it sounds as if it is the main owner determined for him to race again. They keep talking about the Everest as the ownership group hold a slot but TBH I just want him not to jump on Saturday so this whole ordeal is over with. Even if he does jump on Saturday he would need to have at least one more trial before the stewards let him race :roll:
