Pedigree: Holy Roman Emperor (IRE) ex Winged Harriet (IRE)
We worked closely with Roger Fell to purchase Guardia Svizzera. He was one of our main targets from the sale, right from the first moment we saw the Horse In Training sales catalogue. Guardia Svizzera was previously trained in Ireland by John Oxx and has currently won 1 of his 8 starts. His only win to date came in a 7f maiden at Fairyhouse, in which he makes all and very impressive pulling away and then holding off a late challenge (It's well worth a watch).
Guardia Svizzera is by Holy Roman Emperor who stands at Coolmore Ireland. Holy Roman Emperor has twice been the Champion sire of 2yo’s in Europe and has sired numerous group level performing horses including Homecoming Queen (1000 Guineas), Banimpire (Ribblesdale) and Rich Legacy (May Hill Stakes).
The Dam, Winged Harriet, was trained by William Haggas and was lightly raced, winning 1 of her 4 starts.
Even though Guardia Svizzera only managed a modest racing record whilst in Ireland, we think there could be more to come from this son of Holy Roman Emperor. We believe we’ve got him with the right trainer as Roger is a master at finding that bit extra from a horse that others couldn’t.
