Son Of Holy Roman Emperor Strides Clear In Group 2 Mile
Jadoomi (4g Holy Roman Emperor - South Sister, by Sakhee) made it three from three this season with an ultra-impressive performance in Saturday’s Group 2 Boomerang Mile at Leopardstown.
Group 1 placed as a juvenile, Simon and Ed Crisford’s charge raced just once at three, and made a winning return in a Listed contest, before taking the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood.
Ridden by Christophe Soumillon for the first time at Leopardstown, the bay was sent off joint-favourite and led from the early stages. Pushed along from two furlongs out, he powered clear inside the final furlong to win by four lengths.
“It was a very good performance,” trainer Ed Crisford said after the race. “He’s an exciting horse. He’s not in the QEII but we’ll have to sit down with Sheikh Ahmed and have a talk about supplementing.”
The winning rider added, “Every time I asked him to go he had an extra gear and he did it very easy in the end. In the last 100 yards he was flying home.”
Owned by Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum, Jadoomi has won or been placed on all of his nine career starts. Bred by Elevage Du Moratalla, Alban Chevalier Du Fau and Pierre-Hughes Henry, he becomes a second Stakes winner in as many days by Holy Roman Emperor, with Ottilien (Holy Roman Emperor) landing a Listed prize at Saint-Cloud on Friday.
