2015 All Aged Stakes Field: Chautauqua Draws Barrier 1

Odds on the Team Hawkes-trained TJ Smith Stakes winner Chautauqua to win the All Aged Stakes 2015 and go back-to-back in the Randwick Group 1 sprints on Saturday are set to firm after the in-form star draw barrier one for the weekend’s major.

The Encosta De Lago four-year-old is the favourite of 13 final acceptances taken for this year’s $400,000 Group 1 Schweppes All Aged Stakes (1400m), the weight-for-age classic due to run as Randwick Race 6 at 3:45pm (AEDT) as the marquee race of All Aged Stakes Day.

Jockey Tommy Berry retains the ride on the top fancied stallion Chautauqua who broke his Group 1 duck at run number 13 last start, taking his impressive record to six wins and five seconds in total to date.

Now in Saturday’s All Aged Stakes the in-form flyer will look to be the first horse to complete the TJ Smith Stakes – All Aged Stakes double since Bentley Biscuit (2007) became the second in the past decade to achieve the feat.

Barrier one helps him and Berry out on the weekend, the gate last producing an All Aged Stakes winner in 2012 with Atlantic Jewel.

Also faring well in the All Aged Stakes barrier draw this year was the Joe Pride-trained Terravista, the Darley Classic winner from the spring coming up trumps with gate two.

Captain Rio five-year-old Terravista comes off two Group 1 thirds for the autumn having run first-up behind Brazen Beau in the Newmarket Handicap in Melbourne before being beaten by Chautauqua in the TJ Smith last time out on April 6.

He had a wide barrier nine of 10 draw in the TJ and so should appreciate coming into two this weekend, jockey Hugh Bowman staying on and shooting for his second All Aged Stakes winning ride to add to that won aboard Racing To Win (2008).

Pride has also accepted for his last start Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) winner Laser Hawk who is second-up on Saturday in barrier seven with a jockey still to be confirmed.

Drawn the opposite end of this year’s All Aged Stakes field with the outside alley to overcome is the other top fancy in the early betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, the Darren Weir-trained Lucky Hussler.

Jockey Glen Boss, who has won two previous All Aged Stakes aboard Private Steer (2004) and again on champion sprinter Hay List (2011), has a tough test on Weir’s Husson gelding.

No All Aged Stakes winner has jumped from double digits in the past 30 plus years meaning Lucky Hussler as well as Chris Waller’s French import Weary (10), the Noel Mayfield Smith-trained Famous Seamus (11) and Wandjina (12) are all out to make history on the weekend.

Wandjina is one of three smart three-year-olds taking on the older horses in the All Aged this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, his trainer Gai Waterhouse after her fifth win in the classic.

Waterhouse has previously won the All Aged with All Our Mob (1997), Arlington Road (2003), Shamekha (2005) and most recently the aforementioned Bentley Biscuit (2007).

Her 2015 hope Wandjina is a Damien Oliver mount, the Snitzel colt coming off back-to-back Flemington wins this autumn.

His most recent run was a win in Melbourne’s Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 7, and he is out to join All Too Hard (2013) and Atlantic Jewel (2012) as the three-year-old All Aged Stakes winners in the past four years.

The other three-year-olds in the mix this year are the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Caulfield Guineas champ Shooting To Win and Paul Messara’s Golden Rose runner-up Scissor Kick, scratched from the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint last Saturday, drawn in barriers three and four respectively.

The other headliner is the Peter Moody-trained Horse of the Year aspirant Dissident who has his final start before retirement in the All Aged.

Drawn midfield in barrier six for last Saturday’s Sydney Cup winning jockey Jim Cassidy, the four-time Group 1 winning Sebring stallion comes off a third in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield, a race that All Too Hard won before his All Aged success two years ago.
