Holy Roman Emperor
Holy Roman Emperor sired high-class sprinter Rich Tapestry from a SADLER’S WELLS mare. He also sired Gr.2 2yo winner Rich Legacy and Dewhurst runner-up Leitir Mor from GALILEO mares, plus the very speedy Charles The Great from a daughter of BARATHEA and Numerian from a HIGH CHAPARRAL mare. His classic-winner Well Timed has a second dam by SADLER’S WELLS.
His high-class daughter Banimpire has a second dam by NUREYEV. He has Group winners out of mares by FASLIYEV, STRAVINSKY and PEINTRE CELEBRE and his American Gr.1 winner Glorious Empire has a dam by PIVOTAL.
He has the smart German colt Amarillo from a ROYAL ACADEMY mare, plus Gr.3 and Listed winners out of mares by Royal Academy’s son ALI-ROYAL. Gr.2 winner Parvaneh is from a KAHYASI mare, so the NIJINSKY line is successful.
Holy Roman Emperor has three SWs with second dams by GREEN DESERT. His fast son Louis The Pious is inbred 3x3 to DANZIG and his Gr.2-winner Mango Diva has three lines of DANZIG, including 2x3 to DANEHILL. Dewhurst Stakes second Leitir Mor is another inbred 2x3 to DANEHILL.
He has impressive statistics with CADEAUX GENEREUX mares (four SWs from 14 foals), including Well Timed.
Holy Roman Emperor sired 1,000 Guineas winner Homecoming Queen from a DIESIS mare.
In siring Gr.1 winner Morandi and Classic placed Ishvana, he became one of five sons of Danehill to sire a Group winner from daughters of BERING.
Holy Roman Emperor has pleasing results with the MR PROSPECTOR line, including Group-winning 2yos out of mares by MACHIAVELLIAN and ZAFONIC. He also has good winners with LYCIUS mares as their first or second dam.
With the ROBERTO line, Banimpire is from a KRIS S. mare, Gr.3 winner Victoria Messalina is from a daughter of ARCH, speedy SWs are out of daughters of SRI PEKAN and DR FONG, and a NZ Gr.1 winner has a RED RANSOM dam.
The MILL REEF line is an obvious option, as 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.
He sired dual Gr.1 winner Romanised and a 2yo SW from mares by INDIAN RIDGE.
When his son ROMAN TURBO won the 2019 Anglesey S., he became the fifth son of Danehill to sire a Group winner from mares by MONSUN.
