Champion sprinter Chautauqua has arrived safely in Hong Kong ahead of his first appearance on the international stage.
The dual TJ Smith Stakes winner travelled with Godolphin’s Bow Creek and arrived on Tuesday morning.
Co-trainer Michael Hawkes said the gelding coped well with the trip which took 13-1/2 hours from stable to stable.
“He won’t do much between now and Sunday,” Hawkes told Melbourne radio station RSN.
“He’s travelled well and everything’s gone to plan.”
Chautauqua, the world’s highest-rated sprinter in the latest world rankings, runs in the Chairman’s Sprint Prize on Sunday week while Bow Creek will contest the Champion’s Mile.
Queensland sprinter Buffering is already in Hong Kong following his triumph in the Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai and will be among Chautauqua’s rivals.
