Very few horses have galvanised racing fan passion like the big grey flash CHAUTAUQUA did.

Should he be retired, should he be given another chance? It was the debate for the ages.

Well, he is retired now, but…… those passionate racing fans have the opportunity now to get his family back into water cooler conversations.

Chautauqua (Encosta de Lago-Lovely Jubly) made $8.8 million as a racehorse.

At Scone this afternoon, in race 4 to be exact, his little unraced half-brother named ROUCHEL (More Than Ready-Lovely Jubly) will be having his very first race start.

On debut Chautauqua ran 2nd, beaten a lip by a filly named Nautical at Seymore.

Rouchel, who is trained by Team Snowden and will be ridden by Adrian Layt, won a trial in town very impressively recently.

Off the trial, he’ll test these on debut.

If you’re wondering how each got their names, or what they mean, this is what I found when researching.

Chautauqua was an adult education movement in America highly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Chautauqua assemblies expanded and spread throughout the countryside until the mid-1920s.

The Chautauqua brought entertainment and culture for the whole community, with speakers, teachers, musicians, showmen, preachers, and specialists of the day.[1] Former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt was quoted as saying that Chautauqua is “the most American thing in America.”

As for Rouchel, it is a township found in the Hunter valley of NSW.

Chautauqua retired as a gelding so can’t breed. This Rouchel is a colt so a lot rides on his racetrack performances.
