Racing New South Wales have announced on Monday they will not accept any further nominations for Chautauqua to trial or race.

The decision to refuse nominations under the provisions of AR50 will take effect in all racing jurisdictions and comes after the veteran sprinter once again failed to jump from the stalls to the satisfaction of stewards in a trial at Rosehill on Saturday. 

Chautauqua eventually left the barriers before storming home for second in the 1000m heat, but that wasn't enough to satisfy officials.

It was the seventh time the former 'world's best sprinter' has stood flat-footed in the barriers. 

In order to provide Chautauqua's connections with due process, stewards have invited the owners to make any appropriate submissions as to why the preliminary decision to reject nominations should not be confirmed.

Managing owner of Chautauqua, Mr Rupert Legh, has already informed stewards that the majority of shareholders in Chautauqua intend to make submissions.

Stewards will hear those submissions at 1pm on Tuesday before making a final decision on the multiple Group One winner.

Should the preliminary decision stand, Chautauqua's racing career will end on 32 starts, netting 13 wins and $8,821,035 in prizemoney.
