Santagostino Out Of Queensland Oaks
30 May 2007Santagostino's bid on the Gr I $A325,000 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm has been scrapped.

Her Matamata trainer Mark Walker confirmed Santagostino has failed to recover sufficiently from an injury she received when finishing fourth in the Gr III $A150,000 Doomben Roses last Saturday week.

"She's definitely out," said Walker.

"She's pulled a muscle high in her shoulder.

"It's nothing major, but it's enough to rule her out on the Oaks.

"She'll go home and have a good spell and get ready for the spring."

Santagostino created a big impression in Queensland, winning the Listed $A100,000 Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) in her Australian debut before her solid effort in the Doomben Roses (2020m).

Walker and Santagostino's owner-breeders, Peter and Philip Vela, had already looked beyond the Queensland Winter Carnival with the half-sister to 2002 NZ Bloodstock Filly Of The Year, Vapour Trail.

"The plan is for her to get ready for the Kelt (Capital Stakes) at Hastings," said Walker after the Gold Coast Bracelet.

"She'll also be nominated for the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup.

"Being by Giant's Causeway and the way she races there should be no worries about getting the distance."

Walker's interest in Queensland now rests on stablemate Huluava, who will contest the Gr II Grand Prix Stakes on Saturday.

Huluava was second first-up in Queensland over 1800 metres on May 9 to take her record to two wins and two placings from five starts.
