Sioux Nation's Brave Emperor Best In Krefeld Test

Sioux Nation | Coolmore


Giving up a berth in the Kentucky Derby, connections of Brave Emperor (Ire) (Sioux Nation–Roman Gal {Ire}, by Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}) took to the contrasting scene of Krefeld on Friday to garner the G3 Dr Busch-Memorial with their upwardly-mobile campaigner. Winning had become a habit for Middleham Park's flag-bearer last term and Cagnes-Sur-Mer's Listed Prix de la Californie was added to his resume after he took to the Polytrack there like a duck to water in February. Again on top in Kempton's “Road To The Kentucky Derby” Conditions S. the following month, the bay had been caught late by Bold Act (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}) in the Woodford Reserve Cardinal Conditions S. which continued that series at Chelmsford at the start of this month. Bounced out to lead by Luke Morris, the 7-5 favourite gave generously in typical fashion to assert his superiority from the top of the straight and score by 2 1/2 lengths from the G3 Preis des Winterfavoriten third Arcandi (Ger) (Zarak {Fr}).

Pedigree Notes

Brave Emperor is the first foal out of Roman Gal, a half-sister to the Listed Buckhounds S. winner and G1 Coronation Cup runner-up Salouen (Ire) (Canford Cliffs {Ire}). From the family of the G1 Lockinge S. hero Keltos (Fr) (Kendor {Fr}) and fellow sire Loxias (Fr) (Saumarez {GB}), her 2-year-old filly by Inns Of Court (Ire) is named Puella Law (Ire).
