Holy Roman Emperor Fillies Gain Deserved Maiden Wins
The Richard Fahey-trained Holy Endeavour (2f Holy Roman Emperor - Incoming Call, by Red Ransom) made all to get off the mark in the Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Newcastle on Tuesday.
Second over course and distance in September, she was partnered by regular rider Megan Nichols on her latest start and was asked to quicken approaching the final furlong. Keeping on well in the final 110 yards, the bay scored by three parts of a length.
Owned by Titanium Racing Club and bred by Macha Bloodstock, Holy Endeavour provides an important update for her full-brother entered in the Tattersalls December Yearling Sale.
Two days later at Chelmsford, Livia The Empress (2f Holy Roman Emperor - Chastushka, by Poet’s Voice) also gained a deserved maiden win when justifying favouritism over a mile.
Ridden to chase the leaders by David Probert, George Scott’s charge made headway to lead approaching the final furlong and ran on well to win by three and a half lengths.
Livia The Empress has proven consistent for owners KHK Racing, having placed on her three previous starts. Bred by Powerstown Stud, the Holy Roman Emperor filly is a grand-daughter of dual Stakes winner Sesmen.
