Moonlight Cloud Wins France Gr1 Prix De La Foret
On the same card as his sister Criquette landed the Arc at Longchamp with Treve, trainer Freddie Head's charge, 5YO mare Moonlight Cloud (Invincible Spirit-Ventura, by Spectrum), scored a comprehensive 3-lengths victory in the €300,000 Gr1 Prix De La Foret (1400m) for 3YOs+, over 5YO gelding Gordon Lord Byron (Byron-Boa Estrela, by Intikhab) & 3YO colt Garswood (Dutch Art-Penchant, by Kyllachy). Making it a hat-trick of Gr1 wins, Moonlight Cloud took her record to 12 wins (also including the Gr1 Prix Jacques Le Marois, Gr1 Prix du Moulin & Gr1 Prix Maurice de Gheest – three times) & 2 runners-up (including the Gr1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes to Black Caviar) from 19 starts for £1,393,022 earnings.
