1-2 for High Chaparral in Chairman's Stakes
Mark Smith - Sunday, 14 May 2017

A 1-2 for High Chaparral (IRE) in Saturday's Group III Chairman's Stakes (2000m) at Doomben as last start Wagga Gold Cup winner Stampede held the challenge of The Chairman.

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained 4yo has an excellent strike rate and stable spokesman Neil Paine said next Saturday's Group One Doomben Cup (2000m) had not been ruled out.

"I just got off the phone to Gai and she did mention the Doomben Cup even though that would mean backing up again," Paine told AAP.


"I'm quite sure Gai and Adrian will make the decision that's in the best interests of the horse.

"Whether that's running in the Doomben Cup next week or going to the paddock and preparing for the spring carnivals in Sydney and Melbourne remains to be seen."

The son of High Chaparral (IRE) advances his record to 5 wins and 3 seconds from 9 starts with earnings of $280,800.

An $80,000 purchase by G Waterhouse/J Harron/Round Table Racing from the Coolmore draft at the 2014 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling sale, Stampede (pictured as a yearling) is the first foal of the Tale Of The Cat (USA) mare Nothin' Leica Cat who was runner-up in the Group I Queensland Oaks and fourth in the Group I AJC Australian Oaks.

A $150,000 yearling,  Nothin' Leica Cat was passed in short of her $225,000 reserve at last year's Magic Millions National Yearling sale.

She has an unraced 2yo colt by So You Think named Nothintothinkabout, a yearling colt by High Chaparral named Thinkin' Big and a weanling colt by So You Think. She was bred back to High Chaparral's champion son again last spring.
