Champion sprinter Chautauqua has refused to jump for a third time in a trial at Cranbourne this morning.
The three-time TJ Smith Stakes winner was at the Cranbourne trials on Monday after refusing to jump in two trials at Randwick on February 27 and one at Rosehill on March 8.
Managing owner Rupert Legh has told RSN927 Chautauqua is now likely to head to the paddock for a long spell.
