French Import A Credit To Mitch

There was no prouder person on course then Mitch Freedman when French import Puissance De Lune raced to victory on the final day of the Warrnambool Cup Carnival day. Freedman is the stable foreman for Darren Weir’s Warrnambool stable and has done the majority of work with the four-year-old entire. Not being the easiest horse to handle, the first up win was a credit to Mitch’s horsemanship, who was having his first run since a second place over 2100m in September. The son of Shamardal was purchased in France by bloodstock agent Robert Roulston for prominent owner Gerry Ryan. Roulston played an integral part in purchasing another French galloper for Ryan – Melbourne Cup winner Americain. Purchased as a ‘Country Cups’ horse, he will be targeted at the Ryan sponsored Jayco Bendigo Cup in October and then may return to Warrnambool next year for a tilt at the Cup.
