Oakleigh Plate Out for Chautauqua
Star sprinter Chautauqua (Encosta de Lago-Lovely Jubly, by Lion Hunter) will miss Saturday's Gr1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield, reports racing.com. Chautauqua's withdrawal means weights for the $500,000 sprint feature will rise 1.5 kilograms, with Flamberge the new top weight with 57kg (up from 55.5kg). Team Hawkes said Chautauqua is now likely to make his seasonal reappearance in the Gr1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) at Royal Randwick on 10 March.
