Chautuaqua and Deep Field Both Impress in Jump-Outs

Team Hawkes tested two of their best sprinters in jump-outs at Flemington on Friday ahead of busy autumn campaigns for the pair.

Both Chautauqua and Deep Field enjoyed winning trials with Dwayne Dunn in the saddle. The jockey was impressed with the performances by both horses and is keen to see how well they’ll improve heading into the busy autumn season.

“I had a couple of jets out this morning and they are both going really well,” Dunn told Sky Racing.

“They will appreciate this morning’s gallop around here. They should tighten up with fitness and it’s exciting times going into the autumn.”

Unbeaten four-year-old Deep Field was the first one out, cruising to lead his heat before dashing to the line under no pressure winning by roughly a length in a total time of 48.42 seconds.

Chautuaqua, the world’s third-highest rated sprinter, returned to the track after finishing second to Terravista in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) back in November, and did not disappoint. The four-year-old gelding sat just off the leader before moving to the front mid-trial, extending his lead in the straight. He clocked a faster time than Deep Field at 47.18 seconds and won comfortably by roughly two and a half lengths.

“Deep Field idled really well to the corner and picked up nicely,” Dunn said.

“Chautauqua stepped really well. I couldn’t really get him in behind them as is his normal racing pattern so I didn’t really want to fight him.

“I just let him come through his gears and he extended really nicely to the line.”

Deep Field remains unbeaten from his five starts and was last seen winning the Group 2 Stakes (1200m) on November 1.

Chautuaqua proved his worth by winning the Group 2 Sovereign Stakes (1200m) by four lengths last autumn. He really made a name for himself during the spring after winning both the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) and Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m), which was another four length margin. He then managed to keep up with the country’s best sprinters in the Darley Classic, just missing the win by a head.

Dunn is keen to retain the rides on both sprinters during the autumn but that will require the Hawkes brothers keeping the pair out of the same races.

Senior trainer John Hawkes has been non-committal about their programs at this stage but Dunn said he’d be surprised if they clashed at all.

“Probably John’s biggest asset is how to place them properly and he’ll work out which one is fit enough to go to the races first and go from there. I would like them not to clash and I think the stable would probably prefer that as well,” Dunn said.

Whatever happens, the 2015 autumn carnival is set to be a busy time for Team Hawkes with two top sprinters to take care of.
