Travelling WALDGEIST Second in G3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes

Today, Ascot was the destination for the far-travelled WALDGEIST. After all, the three-year-old colt placed second in the French and fourth in the Irish Derby this year. Running a great race once more in Ascot's G3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes with Vincent Chemiaud aboard, Waldgeist came charging from the back of the pack, went six wide around the final turn and found the post was coming a little bit to early for the enormous momentum he had built. Thus, after 2400 m, he was beaten by a short head only by Danehill Kodiac.
