2020 filly by Holy Roman Emperor (GB) ex Borghesa (GER) (Galileo (IRE))
This filly is from a fantastic German family and is by a sire that we are very fond of in Holy Roman Emperor thanks to the exploits of Roman Mist who gave Hot To Trot so many memorable days. He is also the sire of 1000 Guineas winner Homecoming Queen, Irish 2000 Guineas winner Romanisedand, more recently, dual Group 2 winner Jadoomi and the promising filly Ottilien.
The dam, Borghesa, is by the brilliant Galileo, damsire of Ghaiyyath, St Mark’s Basilica, Snowfall and many more top class horses. She is a sister to Coronation Cup winner Boreal and Hong Kong Vase winning mare Borgia; pedigrees do not get classier than this! The full sister to our filly, Rich Legacy, won the Group 2 May Hill Stakes at Doncaster, so we hope the cross will work well a second time! Being a later-maturing type of filly, she was given plenty of time in pre-training last year to grow into her frame. She is a lovely type and this patience should be a good investment when we see her on the racecourse this spring. She is leased from Mr Andrea Carli and Castletown Stud in Ireland
