Bred to be a Champion Honorius is an impressive stallion with an impeccable pedigree and strong racing credentials that will prove to be popular in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Europe, UK and Singapore, a strong turf stallion that performed at the highest grade Honorius is set to be a future star. He is by proven sire in both hemispheres, HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR, a Coolmore owned sire of ten individual Group 1 winners in seven different countries.
HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR is the sire of 82 stakes winners worldwide including Hong Kong legend BEAUTY ONLY, Caulfield Cup and Dual Derby winner MONGOLIAN KHAN, Hong Kong superstar DESIGNS ON ROME, international sprinter RICH TAPESTRY, Thousand Guineas winners HOMECOMING QUEEN (UK) and ROLLOUT THECARPET (NZ).
Honorius is out of Irish mare, Zarinia, also dam of South African Champion and Horse Of The Year, IGUGU, winner of four Group 1 events and ten races in all.
Like his sire, Honorius was a dual winning 2 year old. Later in his 2 year old season, he demolished his rivals by almost 3 lengths when taking out the Juvenile Stayers at Rosehill over 1800m.
He then went on to run 3rd in the Listed Ming Dynasty and 2nd in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes to DUNDEEL (NZ) back in 2012.
Honorius added several other stakes placings to his name, running 3rd in the Group 1 Champion Stakes again to DUNDEEL (NZ) and PROISIR, and then 2nd in the Group 3 Robinson Stakes to HVASSTAN.
In late 2013, Honorius also picked up a Group 3 win in the Craven Plate at Randwick, beating MASKED MARVEL (GB) and VAQUERA (NZ).
