By Kalanisi ex Babble On (Anita's Prince)

Occasionally we see individuals at the sales which simply must be bought, and Imperial Eloquence fitted neatly into that category. By Kalanisi a rising sire, out of a top class race mare and easy on the eye. He was a sharper type than many of the horses we buy and didn't take long to come to hand. There is plenty of speed in his pedigree and as an easy moving, highly athletic specimen he was expected to make his mark in bumpers. He came into full training with Fergal O'Brien in January 2016, and progressed very quickly.  Still very green and with a lot to learn he made his debut in a bumper at Hexham at the end of March winning by 1¾. He went on to be placed in two listed bumpers at Cheltenham and Ascot, but ended the season with a heavy fall on his hurdling debut at Warwick. He is being kept to higher grade novice races at present, but has a very attractive handicap mark which we will look to use to good effect later in the season. Anything he does over hurdles is a bonus as he is a three mile chaser in the making, and will benefit from another summer.
