Bay colt by RIBCHESTER ex Art Institute (Arch)
(Trainer: Hughie Morrison, East Ilsley)
ROMAN ART is a son of RIBCHESTER was champion miler in Europe in 2017. He improved year after year as a racehorse and I think his progeny will do the same. He won the Mill Reef (Gp 2) at two, a Group One at Deauville at three and the Queen Anne Stakes (Gp 1) at Royal Ascot at four. In this his first season as a sire he has already had 15 individual winners including the very smart Flaming Rib.
This colt’s dam Art Institute is by the good broodmare sire Arch and comes from a very strong black-type family full of champions. They include French Guineas winner Flotilla and multiple Group One winner Lethal Force, who is now at stud.
ROMAN ART has had 1 run so far where he was mid division in a strong Kempton novice. He is a horse that will definitely benefit from time as he has always been a big horse that has taken a while to fill into his frame!
