Puissance De Lune x Loma Diamonds
Trainer: Robert Kingston (Mornington)
Puissance De Lune (pictured) created a massive buzz when he won the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) on the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival back in 2012 and on the back of that shot to Melbourne Cup favouritism in the markets for the next year's renewal. That buzz around the eye-catching grey is back and this time as a stallion.
Puissance De Lune retired to Swettenham Stud in Negambie and started his stud career without the extra bonus of front page news in the early years. Fast forward from then to last year's Spring Carnival when Mitch Freedman had Southern Moon (placed in VRC Derby) and Moonlight Maid (Group 2 winner and VRC Oaks placed) as well as the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace trained Heart Of Puissance claiming the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) and the stallion was on the front page of everything.
Speaking on the racing podcast 'The Trainers Hut' Swettenham Principal Adam Sangster said Puissance De Lune had around 50 mares booked before the Spring and then on the back of those results another 100 odd mares were booked.
Puissance De Lune was the most popular stallion in Victoria last season serving 154 mares and everyone wants one.
Here is your chance!
Todd Blum Bloodstock and Robbie Kingston racing have available a beautiful grey filly, just like dad, and out of the four-time winning mare Loma Diamonds. Loma Diamonds was a tough mare and a great type in her own right and is the dam of one foal to race, by Kuroshio, who won in Singapore.
This filly is the second foal and she is a leggy filly with a great walk and confirmation that is typical with the Puissance De Lune horses.
She was bred by Robbie and has been retained to race as she is exactly the sort of horse he would look for in a yearling catalogue.
"I was really keen to hang on to this filly rather than send her through the sales ring and watch her win races for someone else. We have a great group of stable clients in her already and she is Super Vobis and Vobis Gold also," said Kingston.
" think she has a great mix of speed and stamina in her pedigree and the fact that her mother ran as a two-year-old gives me the added confidence in this filly."
