Waldgeist foils Enable as Fabre shows his Arc touch

"She ran an absolutely brilliant race".

Sottsass, the 3-year-old half-brother of champion American turf mare Sistercharlie, ran third in the Arc field of 12, smallest since 2007 - a tribute to Enable's reign over European racing.

"Frankie (Dettori) committed and went for it and with the ground testing her, it's hard to show that turn of foot and Waldgeist has outstayed her on the ground".

As with Enable, connections of Waldgeist will take their time in considering the next move. She's been the most fantastic filly. She's run a lovely race, and I couldn't be more pleased with her. "He's a fine horse, trained by Andre and owned by a good friend of mine".

Speaking to Rob Bonnet on Radio Four's Today programme, he added: "She has had a wonderful career and there always comes a time where you have to say enough is enough, but I think that if she is in good enough shape, Prince Khalid will have that option of continuing or not".

Instead of inaugurating a one-horse club of triple Arc winners, she remains in the eight-horse club to have won it twice and it was Andre Fabre who wrote a new chapter for the history books by extending his record as the race's most successful trainer to eight wins. "The ground had a lot to do with it".

"I'm very proud that Waldgeist managed to beat such a fantastic mare - I'm delighted", said the aforementioned Fabre as he accepted the gracious congratulations of the Enable entourage.

"We have to accept defeat in racing".

While Laurens was left languishing back in seventh, it was a shock return to past glories for Billesdon Brook.

Sean Leavey had Billesdon Brook ideally-placed in midfield, before overhauling another old foe Veracious to win by a length and a half - with Iridessa a further half-length back in third.

"I did make the point before the race she has this great turn of foot from the 400m to the finish line and that is going to be blunted in the ground, which it was".

"I'm not sure about the Breeders' Cup, but we will let the dust settle".

"The expectation is so enormous with these things, there is a wave of goodwill, and the good wishes that we all had was just unbelievable really and therefore it was not quite what we hoped, we've got to be honest about".

Having metaphorically shot Bambi earlier in the afternoon, Boudot teamed up with British trainer William Haggas for the second year in succession to win the Prix de La Foret with One Master.

Enable had won 12 straight, with 10 of those races Group 1 events.

North Yorkshire trainer David O'Meara registered his 1,000th success when Betsey Trotter won at Wolverhampton on Saturday evening.
