Another Group Winner for Holy Roman Emperor

Holy Roman Classic hope wins German G2

Well Timed (3f Holy Roman Emperor-Wells Present, by Cadeaux Genereux) looks one of the leading contenders for the G1 Preis der Diana following her victory in Hoppegarten on Sunday.

Stall Ullman’s progressive home-bred Holy Roman Emperor won the G2 Diana Trial comfortably.

Ridden by Filip Menelik, Well Timed accelerated around 300 metres from home and ran on well to win by a length and a quarter.

The winner has shown rapid improvement all year, winning a Dusseldorf maiden in April and a Listed event at the same track the following month before Sunday’s G2 success.

Holy Roman Emperor was a Champion 2yo in France, winner of the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere in record time as well as the G1 Phoenix Stakes & G2 Railway Stakes.

He is Timeform’s highest rated 2yo ever by Danehill.
