Germany: Morshdi pulls successful invasion


British invader Morshdi (9-2) rained on the German parade at Baden-Baden, with a sharp score in the $745,000, Group 1 Grosser Preis von Baden.

The Michael Jarvis-trained Morshdi defeated German Derby winner Boreal by 1 1/4 lengths with the Andreas Wohler-trained 2-1 choice Sabiango another 1 1/2 lengths back in third.

The victory in this, the fourth leg of the Emirates World Series, puts Morshdi in a four-way tie for the lead in the series - with Galileo, Captain Steve, and Silvano, each with 12 points.

* In Ireland, Aidan O'Brien chalked up his 14th Group 1 win of the year, as Quarter Moon took the Moyglare Stud Stakes for juvenile fillies by three-quarters of a length from Dress to Thrill at the Curragh.
