Holy Roman Emperor
Holy Roman Emperor is injecting speed and precocity into daughters of SADLER’S WELLS, siring the high-class international sprinter Rich Tapestry and the mile Listed winner Canary Row. He sired Gr.2 2yo winner Rich Legacy, Dewhurst runner-up Leitir Mor and Listed winner Mask of Time from daughters of GALILEO, plus the speedy Charles The Great from a BARATHEA mare. His classic-winning daughter Well Timed has a second dam by SADLER’S WELLS.
Mares from the NUREYEV line suit as he has Gr.3 winners out of mares by FASLIYEV and PEINTRE CELEBRE and his Gr.1 winner Glorious Empire has a dam by PIVOTAL. His Gr.2 winner Banimpire has a second dam by NUREYEV.
Holy Roman Emperor has the smart Amarillo from a ROYAL ACADEMY mare, plus Gr.3 and Listed winners out of mares by ALI-ROYAL. A KAHYASI mare produced Gr.2 winner Parvaneh, so the NIJINSKY line is obviously successful.
He has three stakes winners with second dams by GREEN DESERT. His Gr.2-winner Mango Diva has three lines of DANZIG, including 2x3 to DANEHILL and the Dewhurst S. second Leitir Mor is another inbred 2x3 to DANEHILL, so breeders should try Holy Roman Emperor with mares by one of Danehill’s other very successful stallion sons.
Holy Roman Emperor has impressive statistics with daughters of CADEAUX GENEREUX, siring four stakes winners from 14 foals, including the classic-winning Well Timed.
His smart daughter MAUREEN is out of a mare by LINAMIX.
His 1,000 Guineas winner Homecoming Queen is from a DIESIS mare so the SHARPEN UP line definitely works.
In siring the Irish 1,000 Guineas second Ishvana and the Gr.1 winner Morandi, Holy Roman Emperor became one of five sons of Danehill to sire a Group winner from a BERING mare.
He is shaping up well with the MR PROSPECTOR line. He has Group-winning two-year-olds out of mares by MACHIAVELLIAN and ZAFONIC. He also has good winners with LYCIUS mares as their first or second dam.
He has 13% Group winners with mares by ZAFONIC.
Holy Roman Emperor sired Banimpire from a KRIS S. mare and speedy SWs from daughters of SRI PEKAN and DR FONG, a NZ Gr.1 winner with a RED RANSOM dam and a Gr.1-placed Australian colt from an INTIKHAB mare.
The MILL REEF line is an obvious option and Holy Roman Emperor has a Listed winner out of a DAYLAMI mare and others from mares by DARSHAAN and DALAKHANI.
He has Group performers with second dams by RAINBOW QUEST, GROOM DANCER and NASHWAN.
Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Romanised and 2yo Listed winner Piece of Paradise are from mares by INDIAN RIDGE.
His son Roman Turbo won the 2019 Gr.3 Anglesey S., now five sons of Danehill have GSWs with MONSUN mares.
