Holy Roman Emperor
to shuttle to Brazil

HOLY Roman Emperor, last season's leading sire of two-year-olds in Europe, is set to shuttle to Brazil later this year under an agreement between Coolmore and the Associacao Paulista de Fomento ao Turf y Belair Stallions.

The move sees Holy Roman Emperor become only the second son of Danehill to stand in Brazil following Amigoni, another former Ballydoyle inmate who won the 2005 Group 3 Anglesey Stakes.

Winner of the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere and Phoenix Stakes for Aidan O'Brien, Holy Roman Emperor is the sire of nine northern hemisphere stakes winners from two crops aged three and above. They are led by last season's Ribblesdale Stakes heroine Banimpire.

New Zealand Group 2 winner Rollout The Carpet was produced during the stallion's early shuttle trips to Coolmore Australia.

Holy Roman Emperor is currently serving the northern hemisphere season at Coolmore in Ireland for €12,500.
