October 22, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, the Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia will host the Manikato Stakes. The Manikato Stakes is a Group 1 horse race for horses aged three year olds and over. The race will be run under weight for age conditions over a distance of 1200 meters.

With a total prize money of A$1,000,000, 10 sprinter horses have confirmed its participation. Leading the field is Chautauqua, an outstanding sprinter that has dazzled in the last 14 months by placing a strong finish in the Darley Classic, Newmarket and All Ages Stakes.

Chautauqua will compete against fellow sprinters such as seasoned veteran Terravista, Srikandi, Buffering, Fast 'n' Rocking, Rich Enuff, Griante and Tiger Tees. The horse race handicappers have installed Chautauqua as the odds on favorite to win the Manikato Stakes on Friday evening.
