WALDGEIST a force in G2 Qatar Prix Foy
The Arc can come! With an impressive performance in the G2- Qatar Prix Foy (€130,000), WALDGEIST recommended himself today in Paris-Longchamp for his next stop, the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, endowed with 5 million euro prize money. Under his steady jockey Pierre-Charles Boudot, the four-year-old Galileo-colt showed a fantastic performance in the 2400 m challenge against the likely Arc contender, Godolphin's crck Talismanic. After a quiet race off the pace, Boudot put Waldgeist work in the middle lane of the home straight, where the colt drew clear without much effort and showed the way home without seeing even a hint of the whip. At the post, he had one and a half lengths advantage over Talismanic although Boudot had already put his hands down early.
