Indian Lodge Tops Kingsalsa in Prix du Moulin

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.
