A truly outstanding racehorse and hard to argue the claim that Chautauqua is Australian Racing’s most breath-taking sprinter.

Commonly referred to as ‘The Grey Flash’ he regularly went BOOM, winning 13 races throughout his career, including six group 1’s.

He was a three-time winner of the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes and flew the flag overseas taking out the Group 1 Chairman’s sprint in Hong Kong.

His barnstorming finishes from the tail of fields were something to behold and talk about. Watch his top five race wins here; it will make the hair stand up on your neck.

An Elite Racehorse

He was a truly elite racehorse that amassed over $8.8m in career earnings. And not just earning money for his owners; if you had backed Chautauqua throughout his career, you would have achieved a 26% return on investment!

A fitting farewell

He decided to bid farewell to racing on his terms, which is so fitting. How intelligent is this animal?
