Fly To The Stars led by two lengths into the stretch but could not resist the late charge of Indian Lodge, who sprinted away to a two-length win in the Emirates Prix du Moulin de Longchamp (Fr-I) Sunday at Longchamp. Despite traffic trouble, Kingsalsa rallied for second by a neck. Diktat came home third, a nose in front of Fly To The Stars. Over soft turf, Indian Lodge completed the mile course in 1:40 4/5.
The win is the seventh in 16 races for Indian Lodge and his first in a group I. Indian Lodge (Grand Lodge--Repetitious, by Northfields) began his 4-year-old season with two victories before finishing third in the Juddmonte Lockinge Stakes (Eng-I), won by Aljabr. He then finished seventh in the Queen Anne Stakes (Eng_II) and was given a brief freshening. Indian Lodge is trained by Amanda Perrett and was ridden to victory by Cash Asmussen. He was bred in Ireland by R.H. Strudwick.
