Son Of Holy Roman Emperor Secures €1.2million Contest
Numerian (6g Holy Roman Emperor - Delicate Charm, by High Chaparral) made all to take the Group 2 Sky Racing Q22 worth $1.2 million at Eagle Farm.
A Listed winner and Group-placed on multiple occasions in his native Ireland, the son of Holy Roman Emperor gained his first success for Annabel Neashem last time out in the Listed Gosford Cup.
Ridden by Tommy Berry on Saturday, the Teme Valley Racing-owned bay scored by a length from dual Group 1 winner Kolding. “He was always going to be hard to run down,” Berry commented after the race. “He probably didn’t get the credit he deserved going into the race. He does himself all the favours in the world. He ticks a lot of boxes so I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun with him.”
Neasham, who won last year’s running with Group 1 winner Zaaki, added, “He’s run well every time this preparation and he’s just kept on improving. I think we can probably set our sights on something nice in the spring now.”
Numerian was bred by Whisperview Trading and began his career with Joseph O’Brien. The son of Holy Roman Emperor is the top performer out of Delicate Charm (High Chaparral), who has a two-year-old full-brother to the Group winner.
