One-Time KY Derby Hopeful Brave Emperor To Race In Germany Next

Brave Emperor (Ire) (Sioux Nation) will travel to Germany for the G3 Dr Busch Memorial at Krefeld on Apr. 28, according to Middleham Park Racing’s Tom Palin.

The listed winner, who was previously under consideration for the GI Kentucky Derby on May 6, ran second in the Woodford Reserve Cardinal Conditions S. when last seen on Apr. 1.

“He is on his travels, he’s going to go to Germany for a Group 3 on Apr. 28 [Krefeld, Dr Busch Memorial], that’s where he’ll run next,” said Palin. “He’s got no penalties. He has won a listed race but he’s picked up novices, handicaps and conditions races so for a serial winner like him he doesn’t have penalties so we can pick and choose. He should be rocking up at all the big meetings, Royal Ascot, Goodwood, so we’ll hopefully have a good summer with him.

“Trip-wise, 10 furlongs might be a question mark, but certainly nine furlongs we are of the opinion is no problem, it is almost nine furlongs in Germany and we’re confident about that.

“I can’t see why he wouldn’t see 10 out in the future. We could maybe think about something like the [G3] Hampton Court [S.] at Ascot [in June].”
