Chautauqua's immediate racing future is in doubt with the champion sprinter again refusing to jump with the field in an enforced barrier trial at Rosehill.

In contrast to his two recent refusals in trials at Randwick, Chautauqua eventually left the gates and completed the course well behind the last runner in his heat on Thursday.

Stewards ordered Chautauqua to trial after his Randwick disaster with connections hoping to get him to the Group One William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley on March 23.
