Roman Emperor (AUS)
Roman Emperor has made an impressive start at stud

(Montjeu-Gussy Godiva, by Last Tycoon)
Stands 2017 at Princes Farm, NSW, for $6,600

Winner of the Gr1 Australian Derby, Roman Emperor was one of the last classic winners for the late, great Bart Cummings. This elegant colt came back at four and had a typical Bart Cummings Melbourne Cup lead up campaign. Along the way, he ran second to Viewed (the previous year’s Melbourne Cup winner) in the Gr1 Caulfield Cup, and was third in the Gr2 Hill Stakes.

Roman Emperor has begun his stud career quietly with only nine foals in his first crop – but his winner production rate is excellent. Those nine foals have won nine races, led by city winner Imperator Augustus. His small crop of 3YOs includes three city winners, and six winners overall, while his current crop of 2YOs includes the debut winner Roman Typhoon. Given his pedigree and race record, Roman Emperor’s results should improve with time.

Roman Emperor is a son of stamina influence Montjeu; who counts the Gr1 Irish Derby among his six Gr1 wins. As a sire, Montjeu has left the same toughness he himself displayed and has clocked up 125 stakes winners. His sire son Tavistock (Tarzino, Tavago, Werther and Volkstk’n’barrell) is kicking goals locally, as is Authorized who counts local Gr1 galloper Hartnell among his 30 stakes winners.

Roman Emperor is one of two stakes winners out of city winner Gussy Godiva, who is a half-sister to Gr1 winner Black Mamba. This is the family of Gr1 winners Tully Thunder and Hong Kong Mile winner Glorious Days.
