When bloodstock experts John Foote and Angus Gold talk about top stallions, it pays to listen to their opinions.
Both men agree that Puissance de Lune is the best value stallion in Australia.
Gold put it bluntly when asked his opinion on value stallions and said Puissance de Lune “gives mare owners a proper chance at a sensible price.”
Again it’s a case of exceptional statistics on the track and in the sales ring for the progeny of the son of Shamardal.
Racetrack performances show higher earnings per runners for the grey stallion than any other sire of the same crop.
Puissance de Lune produced outstanding three year-olds Moonlight Maid and Southern Moon last racing season. Moonlight Maid won the Group 2 Edwards Manifold Stakes and finished second in the Group 1 Australian Oaks.
Southern Moon went from winning a Donald maiden to finishing second in both the Listed Geelong Classic and Group 1 Victoria Derby at his next two starts.
Some big breeders have already booked in multiple mares to Puissance de Lune.
