Throwback race of the day - 13/07/20

Star Catcher

This weekend all eyes turn to The Curragh for the Irish Oaks and we will be looking throughout the week at the best renewals of the race over the last few years starting today with last year's contest.

This Group One event has seen some superb winners recently and it has played host to British raiders coming over to land the Classic event.

In 2019 John Gosden sent over his star filly Star Catcher in a bid to land the black type event and off the back of landing the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot she was a hot favourite.

Many thought she had her frailties and may just be outstayed by some of the horses but she proved them wrong to land her first Group One of her career.
