We examine massive particles and null geodesics for the scalar-tensor black hole in the Horndeski-Galileon framework. Our analysis shows that first kind relativistic orbits, corresponding to circular and elliptic orbits, are absent for the black hole solution with the static scalar field. This is a highly pathological behavior contradicting to the black hole accretion and Solar System observations.
