What do we make of this race?  History is out of the window and commercialism in racing enters a new era.  What is the point of it all and how long will it last?  I think it is a sad reflection on racing and the thoroughbred industry but it does showcase some nice horses, and is especially interesting when we see that most dosages are a lot lower than we would expect from a field of pure sprinters.  Having said that, I think Chautauqua is clearly the best horse in the race, but I think he is looking for more ground these days.  For those who know the family, his dam Lovely Jubly's half brother Sir Howard won two stakes races over 1600m in NZ.  Before that, the most recent stakes winner in the family was Royal Dell who won stakes races over 2100m and 3200m.  I am not suggesting that Chautauqua is a stayer, only that I think he might appreciate an extra 200m or so the way he is racing.  The interesting runner is She Will Reign, but I would have loved to see her in Melbourne for the Thousand Guineas which is where the best 3yo fillies should be.
