Queensland Oaks filly Belle Roc will be scratched from Saturday’s field after a major injury at trackwork this morning.
The Brian Smith trained filly suffered major sesamoid injuries this morning in her work and will be sent for surgery tomorrow with the filly unlikely to race again.
On The White Turf will now gain a start in the race.
Terrible news for all concerned with filly Belle Roc. Trainer Brian Smith has just informed she has suffered major sesamoid injuries pulling up this morning after the lightest of track gallops ahead of the Oaks. Operation will take place tomorrow to place sesamoids back on joints
