Gr1 Irish Oaks Loses Gesture

Friday, 19th July 2013

Epsom Oaks runner-up Secret Gesture (Galileo-Shastye, by Danehill) will miss the Gr1 Irish Oaks at The Curragh this weekend, reports turftrax.com. The 3YO Galileo filly chased home her stable mate Talent in the English Oaks on May 31 and connections would have been hoping to go one better on Saturday, but she has succumbed to a slight injury. Trainer Ralph Beckett confirmed Secret Gesture's withdrawal when tweeting: "Secret Gesture will not run in the Irish Oaks, she has picked up a knock on a hind leg, which will take a few days to recover from." An impressive winner of the Listed Oaks Trial at Lingfield, Secret Gesture has won 2 of her 4 starts.
