An excellent Sunday for Holy Roman Emperor continued at Leopardstown when consistent filly Flying Fairies (3f Holy Roman Emperor-Bright Birdie, by Sadler´s Wells) took the Listed Trigo Stakes.
Gary Carroll was aboard Joe Murphy’s charge as she took the 10-furlong lengths by three and a quarter lengths in some style from Zawraq.
“She’s barely been out of the first three or four in her life. She’s a very genuine filly. The Holy Romans are like that and it was a nice place to have her,” said Murphy.
Carroll added: “She’s been improving all the year. She seemed to improve for a step up to a mile and a quarter. The race worked out well. I got first run up the straight and she kept going all the way to the line for me.”
