Group 1-winning mare Rollout The Carpet (Holy Roman Emperor), in foal to The Autumn Sun (Redoute's Choice), is part of a high-profile unreserved dispersal sale live now on Gavelhouse Plus.

The winner of the New Zealand 1000 Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m), Rollout The Carpet will be offered alongside her weanling colt by Pierro (Lonhro) and her two winning half-sisters Vendella (Exceed And Excel) and Out Of Friendship (Tale Of The Cat), who is in foal to No Nay Never (Scat Daddy). 

Rollout The Carpet won the Matamata Breeders' Stakes (Gr 2, 1200m) and was then first past the post in the Diamond Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) before being relegated to second. She also finished third in the Easter Handicap (Gr 1, 1600m) as a four-year-old. 

Rollout The Carpet is part-owned by New Zealand's Bloodstock's International Bloodstock Manager John Cameron. "She's a well-bred, highly performed, quality mare," Cameron said.

"My partners Mr Fan, Mr Tung, the Orams and myself were very fortunate to have bred her and we enjoyed every moment of her racing career.

"Obviously the highlight being her very determined win in the 1000 Guineas which gave us a tremendous thrill as owners and we were extremely proud of her.

"Rollout The Carpet's weanling colt by the outstanding young sire Pierro gives buyers the opportunity to purchase him with a view of on-selling him as a yearling or alternatively buying him as a potential racehorse to race in their own colours."

The catalogued as Lot 1, the mare is out of Out Of Eygpt (Red Ransom), who is herself a sister to Grade 2 winner Wandering Star - the dam of Dewhurst Stakes (Gr 1, 6f) winner War Command (War Front) and Group 3 winner Naval Officer (Tale Of The Cat).
