Chautauqua has given us plenty to cheer about and after he was retired last night $24,000 in wagers has been refunded to punters.
Punters will be disappointed, as we are, that Chautauqua’s career is over – hopefully this refund will lift their spirits. He was an exciting racehorse and has given us some great memories to look back on.

Despite his barrier shenanigans, plenty of punters were still happy to back the ‘Grey Flash’ making the Everest field and other future Group 1 sprints.
Our generous, pre-nomination refund rule, ensured those punters were not penalised by Chautauqua’s antics, which forced the end of his racing career.
Bet’s refunded include:
- The Everest
- To win another Group 1
- Winterbottom Stakes
- Manikato Stakes
- VRC Sprint
