Ti Amo, a talented daughter of Holy Roman Emperor, is offered for sale out of the yard of trainer Gemma Anderson. Gemma would be thrilled to keep her in the yard, or she could be sold externally.
Ti Amo didn't race as a two-year-old, but showed bundles of ability when she did finally see a racecourse. She was fourth in a maiden at Killarney on debut behind the subsequent Listed-scorer Erysimum and showed plenty on her next two outings to earn an official rating of 70.
Her first run in 2017 was a career best and saw her narrowly beaten into third in a seven-furlong handicap at Cork. Although she has run below-par on a few occasions since, she has more than demonstrated that her ability remains intact. The result of these efforts is that she now finds her rating as low as 53 - which looks exceptionally lenient.
Whilst her flat mark looks ripe for exploitation, it must be pointed out that Ti Amo has more than enough physical scope to make a jumper. Her sire Holy Roman Emperor has had many winners over hurdles and this filly boasts a temperament which strongly suggests she could adapt to that discipline.
Ti Amo is recently returned from a holiday and is ready to come back into work for the 2018 season. She remains lightly-raced and her best days surely lie ahead of her.
