Grand Lodge Adds French Gr3

Monday, 30th April 2007

Also in France overnight, ill-fated former Woodlands Stud shuttler Grand Lodge (Chief's Crown-La Papagena, by Habitat) added a group success when Khalid Abdullah's Host Nation (Grand Lodge-Hunt The Sun, by Rainbow Quest) gained the verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the €80,000 (A$128,000) Gr3 Prix De Barbeville (3100m) for 4YOs & up at Longchamp. Host Nation (ridden by Stephane Pasquier for trainer Andre Fabre) scored by a neck from German-bred front-runner Le Miracle (Monsun-L'heure Bleue, by Kendor) with a further neck to fast-finishing mare Ponte Tresa (Sicyos-Ponte Brolla, by Highest Honor). Host Nation "is a half-brother to Gr1 Dubai Sheema Classic hero & 1st season stallion Polish Summer (by Polish Precedent)," noted thoroughbredinternet.com.
