If you look at the video of the race, the horse does not even enter the frame until the 200 metre mark but from that point there is no mistaking the grey’s trademark finishing burst down the outside. So fast did Chautauqua get home that Berry had the race won in a matter of strides and actually sat up on the horse as they passed the post.
Despite the decisive victory and big bonuses on offer if Chautauqua went on to win in England, the horse will not be heading to Ascot. Co-trainer Michael Hawkes said the decision not to go to England had been made in the best interests of the horse.
