Jockey Dwayne Dunn said that he was out to “turn the lights back on” world champion sprinter Chautauqua in a Flemington jump out today.

Chautauqua was having his first serious hit out since winning the Group 1 HK$10,000,000 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m) at Sha Tin in Hong Kong on May 1 when he cruised to a three quarters of a lengths win over five rivals in an 800m jump out down the Flemington straight.

Dunn said that Chautauqua felt terrific underneath him and added that he did enough to ‘turn the lights back on.”

“It was just a matter of going through the paces and turning the light back on,” Dunn told RSN’s Racing Ahead.

“He was probably gassing out the last fifty metres but he was there to do a little bit without knocking him around.”

“Usually his behaviour is at its worst when he has his first jump out but he was very good this morning so really pleased with the way he is going.”

“Out of that relaxed mode and now it is time to get ready and get prepared for the races.

“Really impressed with the way he went through his paces this morning.”

The Team Hawkes trained Chautauqua was crowned the world’s best sprinter after winning in Hong Kong and while Dunn said the six year felt terrific today, he also said that it is hard for him to improve on his last campaign when he collected three Group 1 trophies from four attempts and took his overall tally to five.

“How much better can he go that last preparation so all I can take out of it is I was very impressed with the way he has come through it,” Dunn said.

“His fitness level is really good and it doesn’t feel like the trip has affected him at all.”

“He is the same old Chautauqua that we know and I was really impressed with the way he went through his paces this morning.”

As well as winning the Chairman’s Sprint Prize at Sha Tin in the Autumn, Chautauqua won the Group 1 $750,000 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) at Flemington on February 20 and won his second Group 1 $2.5m Darley T J Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on April 2.

Chautauqua’s other Group 1 win was in the $1m Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley during the 2015 Melbourne Spring Carnival.

Chautauqua will try to add another Group 1 trophy to his collection when he resumes in the $500,000 City Jeep Moir Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley on September 30.
