Managing owner Gerry Ryan was thrilled with the horse’s race win in today’s 2012 Bendigo Cup.

“I think he’s a serious horse,” Ryan said.

“He was a reasonably good bargain, 100,000, a great buy.

“Next year we’ll have a tilt at the (Melbourne) Cup.”

Trainer Darren Weir is now looking to send Puissance De Lune to the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes over 2,600 metres at Flemington Racecourse on November 10, 2012.

“It’s a great result,” said Weir.

“It’s a great result. It’s good for Gerry too. He asked me to get the horse set for the Bendigo Cup,” Weir said.

“Onwards and upwards from there.

“Today was going to decide whether Queen Elizabeth or not.”

Jockey Glen Boss was impressed with the effort given by Puissance De Lune in the 2012 Bendigo Cup.

“He was pretty strong through the line, he ran a very strong mile and a half,” Boss said.

“I just thought he was a horse that was a highly talented racehorse.

“As soon as I clicked him up he came straight up on the bridle.

“He did no work and it was going to take a pretty decent horse (to beat him) as he sprinted home pretty quick.”
