Holy Roman Emperor Adds Irish Gr3
In Ireland overnight, dual Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Holy Roman Emperor (Danehill-L'On Vite, by Secretariat) added a group success when his filly Banimpire (Holy Roman Emperor-My Renee, by Kris S) scored a half-length victory in the €47,500 (A$65,000) Gr3 Ballysax Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs at Leopardstown. Banimpire (ridden by Kevin Manning for trainer Jim Bolger) defeated the colts Regent Street (Galileo-Hanami, by Hernando) & French-bred favourite Recital (Montjeu-Dibenoise, by Kendor). Last month Banimpire finished 3rd in Ireland's Gr3 Park Express Stakes (8 furlongs) at The Curragh & overall now has 2 wins & 2 placings from 6 starts.
