Tuesday fought tenaciously to hold off the fast finishing favourite Emily Upjohn to win the 2022 Cazoon Oaks at Epsom.
The win was a 10th success in the race for trainer Aidan O’Brien, with the daughter of Galileo being ridden by Ryan Moore.
Tuesday, who is three-years-old today, is out of Lilly Langtry, making her a full sister to Minding, the top-rated filly of 2016 worldwide.
😲 What a finish!

Emily Upjohn, the runner-up by a short-head under Frankie Dettori, was unlucky in the Epsom Classic, as she stumbled exiting the starting stalls, meaning she was last after a furlong.
The John and Thady Gosden-trained filly made progress throughout the 1 m 4 furlong contest, but Tuesday had first run on the her in the home straight, and would not be denied at the line.
The Cazoo Oaks victory for Aidan O’Brien was a record 41st British Classic success for the Ballydoyle handler, surpassing the John Scott, who trained between 1827 and 1863.
