I had mentioned in previous posts that we had taken a share in a Roman Emperor colt (gelding) with John Sargent. Now called Colosseum King, he was successful in a mile maiden at Kembla on Saturday.

There's a little write up (second half of the article) and a photo from the local rag:

Noticed that a 3yo by Roman Emperor called NEPEAN trained by James Cummings won at Randwick today.

Is this Roman Emperor's first metropolitan winner? Can't say I'm seen too many at the track. Would be great if he get some handy gallopers. He's a beautifully bred stallion and from memory a real good looker too.

Interesting that NEPEAN races in the old Leilani colours too.  I assumed they were owned by Andrew Peacock who owned Leilani back in the 70's. The Cummings family must have subsequently acquired them.

I've taken a keen interest in the Roman Emperor progeny as I am a part-owner in Colosseum King and have a colt on the ground by him, with my mare back in foal.

Nepean is the third metropolitan winner for Roman Emperor, following Imperator Augustus (Randwick) and Gold Denari (Morphetville). He has also had Emperor's Way, who placed at Warwick Farm last start and indeed has placed at all three starts.

Other winners for Roman Emperor include Colosseum King (3 wins), Caesar's Ghost and Savona Sunset, all of whom having won at the NSW provincials. Based on my numbers he has winners to runners of about 50%.

Although I concede some bias, I think he is travelling really well but needs a headline horse or two to be commercial. The ones I have seen are all lovely types and they should benefit with time and maturity. In particular, I hope that the current three year olds of Nepean, Emperor's Way and Savona Sunset can step up into some black type races as the distances get longer.

Thanks LH. Avdulla basically shut him down in the last 100m the other day as he was worried that he might not be getting enough air into his lungs. He was travelling like the winner 200 out but shut down pretty quickly. We have had him dynamically scoped since and there doesn't appear to be a specific problem so the vet has recommended a tongue tie and freshening him up - you may see hi next back over 1200m at Randwick on Australia Day.

Congrats from me too Robbo.  You've shown amazing faith in both he and his sire.  Thumbs Up

ps where was the tip, particularly given the way I valiantly defended your antics in the Canberra Members Bar back in the days when you were a totally unruly 8yo rugrat.  Angry  Wink

Yes Carioca, Roman Typhoon winning at Muswellbrook over 900m scamper was impressive.

Thanks guys - we couldn't really tip him given the track came up as a Heavy 8 and he needs to be on top of the ground in order to utilise his turn of foot. He can let go quickly when he gets the right run in a race and when Travis poked his head through the gap at the 250 he let down very well. Probably his best win and he pulled up a treat.

We were the underbidders on Roman Typhoon at last year's Classic Winter sale. I had inspected all of the Roman Emperor's at Princes and he was a clear standout. When Bart passed away the Estate demanded that all of the yearlings go through public auction - hence in the very much second tier Classic Winter sale. We had agreed to go to $18,000 and ended up going to $21,000. Jan Bowen was sitting behind me and just holding her hand up. When I spoke to her after the sale she mentioned that she had a massive wrap on the half-brother, Exit Only. As it turns out Exit Only is ordinary and Roman Typhoon could be anything.

On the plus side, I have a lovely Roman Emperor colt on the ground and the mare is back in foal to him. His last five runners have been three winners and a second, which was a filly called Ave who was narrowly beaten in a $40K Showcase Maiden at Wellington yesterday. As I said earlier in the thread - they can all gallop but he just needs a headline horse. Roman Typhoon might be the one.

Colosseum King is in the last at Newcastle today. The 1200m will be too short but he should be hitting the line hard. Given the carnival and his awkward benchmark of 72 he is tricky to place.

A friend has a mare who I suggested would be a super match but I suspect she'll be short on sufficient funds to send her next season Cry

Don't be too hasty to rule him out - Princes are good to negotiate with and also offer nominations via bloodstockauction.com.au (at least they did last year). I was able to secure one at well below the service fee.

It does look a lovely match with the infusion of Centaine, who worked so well with those deep New Zealand families.

I was absolutely rapt to see Roman Emperor get his first stakeswinner on Saturday with Emperor's Way winning the last at Randwick. He did a superb job in the preparation, going from a Class One to black-type and now has more than $360K in the bank from only 15 starts.

Latin Boy also broke the Newcastle 900m track record on Friday with 60.5kg.

Would love to see Roman Typhoon given a change to get over some ground, I know he has traits but they can be ironed out with time, he has loads of ability imo, it's there..just have to surface.

Was ok first up at Scone & goes to 1200m in the Highway Hcp at Randwick tomorrow.

Hope he progresses well this prep and we get to see what he can do over some ground.

I know what he wants Lord Hybrow and I am in no way being disparaging to the trainer, he's a bit of a head case I reckon, needs a regimented schedule where everything is done like clockwork morning, noon and night a la TJSmith where every was ridden to the track leading one as well , no horse went to the track one out , ride one lead one , they soon got the hang of it even Tulloch made no difference what horse it was , same time every morning and exercise in the afternoon, they become racehorse not headcases, didn't have time to think about anything else , he will stay , has got talent, I wish her well.

I think it’s d-day for Roman Typhoon today if he is going to live up to the hype. Really liked his run first up when had no support and his second up run last prep at Randwick was super in a hot race. Hopefully 1 alley isn’t a hindrance.

He's not putting in imo, and still looks reluctant, hesitant , or a little big boy lost.

Despite Roman Typhoons narrow 4th today, the mighty ROMAN EMPEROR still had a winner with Gold Denari winning race 5 at Gawler - seems like he’s a genuine sprinter with 4 wins from 10 starts, all wins between 1000-1250m.

Agree 100%. And Jean-Claude dropping the whip wouldn’t have helped in that regard. Still had his chance.

It was pleasing to see Roman Typhoon deliver on his undoubted potential on Saturday. He still wants to do a few things wrong but the aggressive ride from Avdulla was the difference.

Great weekend for Roman Emperor with three winners from five Australian runners, with Etheridge (Roman Son's little sister) and Savona Sunset both winning at Hawkesbury yesterday. Emperor's Way was also warming up nicely in the Winter Stakes.
