Fullness of Life has won over 1200m in Italy over the weekend bringing her to two wins and one second from only three starts. She also marks the 79th Stakes winner for her sire Holy Roman Emperor.

In 2018 alone, Holy Roman Emperor has sired three Group One winners as part of his overall 17 Stakes winners so far, contributing to his outstanding overall statistic of 67% winners to runners including 42 Group winners worldwide, making him a desirable choice for the current market.

 A dual Group One winner that raced only at two, Holy Roman Emperor has sired no fewer than 79 Stakes winners worldwide and has proven success, predominantly over middle distance races, making his progeny versatile and appealing to international buyers as well as the Australian market. The stallion has sired Group One winners such as Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Romanised, Well Timed, Glorious Empire and the brilliantly fast Australian mares Angelic Light and Sheidel.

His outstanding sire record also includes Caulfield Cup and dual Derby winner Mongolian Khan, HK superstar Designs on Rome who has had an impressive 11 wins, including four Group One victories, globetrotting sprinter Rich Tapestry and Thousand Guineas heroine Homecoming Queen.

Holy Roman Emperor and Stravinsky mares have proven success, producing 2 runners for 2 winners, one of which being Fullness Of Life with her recent win in the Rome Premio Ubaldo (L).

Having already sired two Group One winners as a broodmare sire in Johannes Vermeer and Verbal Dexterity the results speak for themselves.

In 2018, Holy Roman Emperor yearlings in Australia averaged $110,000 with a colt out of Phocis selling for an impressive $260,000 which is over 25 times his advertised service fee of $9,900.

Holy Roman Emperor is a two-time Champion Sire in Hong Kong and a proven stallion in both hemispheres. He was a Champion 2YO Colt of his generation and is one of the few commercial sons of Danehill left at stud.

“A quality individual with an outstanding temperament. Outstanding horse in general. I would be advising breeders to seriously look at Holy Roman Emperor” says Murray Baker, trainer of Mongolian Khan.
