WALDGEIST fights to win G1 Grand Prix de Saint Cloud

Gestuet Ammerland's WALDGEIST shone brightly in France today, showing incredible heart and recording a brilliant victory in the Grand Prix de Saint Cloud, a €400,000 G1 challenge run over 2400 m. The four-year-old colt by Galileo worked hard in a field of six with his frequent partner Pierre-Charles Boudot aboard. The pair had an undisturbed trip midfield and took to task with a great turn of foot leaving the final turn, yet they met strong opposition and were challenged to the core. Waldgeist laid out all he got and, in the end, nailed the win by a nose at the wire to record his third consecutive group win and second one at the highest level there is in horse racing.
