Waldgeist Wins Gr1 Prix de Saint-Cloud
At Saint-Cloud in France overnight, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) celebrated a top-flight success when 4YO UK-bred entire Waldgeist (Galileo-Waldlerche, by Monsun) prevailed in a photo finish to claim a thrilling nose win in the Gr1 Prix de Saint-Cloud (12 furlongs), defeating Coronet & Salouen. This was the second Group 1 win for the Andre Fabre-trained Waldgeist who improved his record to 5 wins (including the Gr1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud) and 4 placings (including the French Derby) from 12 starts.
