WALDGEIST with convincing win in G3 Prix D'Hedouville

Sunshine abound and a stellar crowd at France's premier racecourse at Paris-Longchamp bore witness to a convincing performance by Gestuet Ammerland's WALDGEIST in the €80,000 G3 Prix D'Hedouville over 2400 m today. The four-year-old by Galileo out of the Monsun-mare WALDLERCHE and had entered the starting gates as the favourite and impressed with a solid run that culminated in an impeccable speed attack none of his opponents could answer to. Pierre-Charles Boudot had last year's winner of the G1 Critérium de Saint-Cloud settle midfield along the rails and once he took him to task two furlongs into the final stretch, the colt responded in an instant and jumped away from the field in one rush to secure his ticket for the winner's circle by a length and a half.
