Breeders’ Cup could be next for Holy Roman Emperor 2yo Listed winner

Dylan Thomas conformation

Trainer Aidan O’Brien is considering a trip to the Breeders’ Cup with the Holy Roman Emperor filly Homecoming Queen (2f Holy Roman Emperor-Lagrion, by Diesis) after her runaway win in Listed company at the Curragh on Sunday.

The three-parts sister to champion Dylan Thomas took the Lanwades Stud and Staffordstown Stakes over a mile by four and a quarter lengths under the trainer’s son Joseph.

“She always worked like a very good filly but took a while to win and she ended up at Fairyhouse off a mark of 72,” O’Brien told www.irishracing.com. “ Then she had a great run here. Maybe I was running her over too short. She’s a good mover and has a big heart. She’s a very well-bred filly.

“Joseph said to go to America (Breeders’ Cup) for the fillies’ race. We’ll see. Obviously she’s a filly with a lot of ability.”
