Puissance De Lune Sibling Makes Winning Return

Friday, 19th February 2016

Central Coast trainer Kim Waugh will be hoping that well-related import His Majesty can finally realise his significant potential after he resumed with a brilliant win at Newcastle yesterday. The 6YO Irish-bred gelding is by Shamardal out of the Unbridled's Song mare Princess Serena, making him a full-brother to dual Gr2 winner and four-time Gr1-placegetter Puissance de Lune. Having his first run since suffering a bleeding attack in August last year, His Majesty showed that he is destined for much better races when cruising to an easy 1.3-length win in the Yellowglen Benchmark 75 Handicap over 1150 metres. His Majesty is being set for the Provincial Championships. "That was a great return," said Waugh's husband and former Australian cricketer Mark Waugh. "He has a natural turn of foot so he can reel them in without doing too much work." He added: "It's just great to see this horse come back because he has a lot of potential. We just want to see him get to where he deserves to be." Winning rider Blake Shinn was also impressed. "He has always possessed a lot of ability. He's a lovely horse going forward," he said. His Majesty, who began his racing career in the UK, has now won 4 of his 11 starts for $66,559 earnings.
