Trip To Rome

Bay Colt
DOB: 08 Mar 2020
Holy Roman Emperor x Marthamydear (Tapizar)

Another purchase alongside JD Moore, this colt was picked up for €15,000 at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale. He is from a family Ed knows extremely well, being the first foal out of a half-sister to stable stalwart Red Verdon. Still going strong at the age of eight, Red Verdon has won 10 of his 51 starts, amassing prize-money just shy of £750,000. Successful at Group 2, Group 3 and Listed level, he also ran second in the Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris at three.

A strong, neat horse with a good temperament, this colt is from the further family of Hong Kong champion River Verdon. Given that and the success of his sire in Australia and the Far East, he looks to have a bright future.
