An interest is available in this horse - Please Note this is not a whole horse for sale

**** HUGE UPDATE: Holy empress runs a very close 3rd to Duchess of Lennox at scone on April 8. Duchess of Lennox is being aimed at the Group 1 Queensland Oaks and is now at 10-1 odds to win the Oaks so this form is well and truly franked. This was holy empress first run at 1600m and she is now primed to run over 1600m and above going forward.

Holy Empress is a 3yo filly who has had only 5 starts for 1 win and 2 placings with over $22,000 in prizemoney.

She has a wonderful pedigree being out of a redoutes choice mare and in the same family as the superstar "Saintly” and the stallion Gods Own.

At her debut, she ran a close second over 1300m which was followed by her debut victory where she travelled wide the whole way to overpower her rivals.

Being by Roman Emperor, her trainer Scott Singleton is confident she will be best suited at a mile and beyond.

At her first start from a spell at Nowra on 25 February 2019, she was caught 4 and 5 wide and ran a huge race to be beaten only 1.8 lengths in 4th behind Gai Waterhouses sebring filly Wimlah.

If you want to race a horse right now who has massive upside and a super pedigree, instead of waiting 12 months plus for a yearling to race then this is your opportunity.
