Holy Roman Emperor Paddock Shot

Italian 2yo G3 success for Holy Roman Emperor

Gentleman Only (2c Holy Roman Emperor-Goldendale, by Ali-Royal) looked a bright prospect for 2014 when running out on easy winner in the G3 Premio Guido Berardelli in Rome on Sunday.

The Holy Roman Emperor colt scored by four lengths and trainer Stefano Botti predicted that there could be even better to come.

“I was very disappointed when he ran badly on his debut in June but after the summer break he improved all the time. This is his third win and he has room for improvement,” Botti told EBN.

Bred by Massimo Parri, Gentleman Only is a €72,000 graduate of the ITS Selected Yearling Sale.
