Moonstone Wins Gr1 Irish Oaks

Monday, 14th July 2008

In Ireland, filly Moonstone (Dalakhani-Solo De Lune, by Law Society) snatched the €500,000 (A$825,000) Gr1 Irish Oaks (12 furlongs) for 3YO fillies by a short-head at The Curragh. Ridden by Johnny Murtagh, Moonstone's victory provided Aidan O'Brien with Ballydoyle's 13th Gr1 victory of the season. Just denied glory was stable mate Ice Queen (Danehill Dancer-Wadud, by Nashwan). A further 2 lengths back was Gagnoa (Sadler's Wells-Gwynn, by Darshaan). Moonstone had finished runner-up in last month's Gr1 English Oaks (12 furlongs) for 3YO fillies at Epsom Downs.
