Select features by draw tool with where clause in query?

I'm not sure this is possible, but what I'd like to do is allow users to draw a bounding polygon around a bunch of features, and then of those features, only select the ones where an attribute equals a particular value. When you select the patches using the draw tool, you create a query and set the geometry to whatever the drawn polygon encompasses, but it doesn't appear any attributes of the features are returned on draw-complete so I'm not sure using a where clause with that query will work? This is what I have tried.


//Create selection by drawing on map
function selectPatches(selectionType) {
    var selectTool = new Draw(map);
    //Deactivate popups when drawing
    var selectQuery = new Query();

    on(selectTool, "draw-complete", function (Geom) {
        selectQuery.geometry = Geom.geometry;
        //Select all patches within the bounding polygon
        if (selectionType == "selectAll") {
            patchesFL.selectFeatures(selectQuery, FeatureLayer.SELECTION_NEW);
        //Select only patches that are designated as quail habitat in the bounding polygon
        else {
            selectQuery.where = "OfficalQH = 1";
            patchesFL.selectFeatures(selectQuery, FeatureLayer.SELECTION_NEW);
        //Reactivate popups when done drawing
