Horse racing: Waldgeist denies Enable unprecedented Arc hat trick
PARIS , (Reuters) – Waldgeist, ridden by Pierre-Charles Boudot, won the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe to deny Enable a hat trick of victories in Europe’s richest race on Sunday.
Enable, ridden by veteran jockey Frankie Dettori, looked set for an unprecedented third straight win at Longchamp, only for the 16-1 shot Waldgeist to pip her to the line.
Waldgeist had been beaten in three previous races against Enable but the overnight rain in Paris might have played a part.
“I passed the 200 (meter mark) and I was a spent force. I think the ground had a lot to do with it,” said the 48-year-old Dettori.
