Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Waldgeist will stand at Ballylinch Stud in Ireland.

Arc winner Waldgeist is to stand at Ballylinch Stud in Ireland alongside Lope De Vega who also carried the silks of Gestut Ammerland’s Dietrich von Boetticher.

In his final race, Waldgeist famously denied Enable a third consecutive win in last month’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

He was trained throughout his career by Andre Fabre and ridden to his greatest win by Pierre-Charles Boudot.

“The team at Ballylinch are delighted to welcome Waldgeist here to join Lope de Vega,” Ballylinch managing director John O’Connor told the Racing Post.

“We look forward to working with Dietrich von Boetticher and Newsells Park to help develop him into another top-class sire.”

Waldgeist is by champion stallion Galileo out of Waldlerche, a Group Three-winning daughter of Monsun.
