Europe's highest-rated filly Highfield Princess completes G1 hat-trick with magnificent win in Ireland

Night Of Thunder's daughter victorious in G1 Flying Five Stakes

Night Of Thunder’s brilliant sprinting daughter Highfield Princess completed a magnificent hat-trick of G1 wins in the space of five weeks with victory in the G1 Flying Five Stakes over five furlongs at the Curragh, Ireland on Sunday, 11 September.

Highfield Princess, trained by John Quinn, is now the winner of three G1 races in three different countries. Her trio of G1 successes began in France in August when she took the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville, this was followed up at York less than two weeks later with a stunning two-and-a-half length victory in the Nunthorpe Stakes.

She then headed to Ireland where under her regular jockey, Jason Hart, she travelled strongly throughout the race before cruising on to a three-and-a-quarter length victory to complete the hat-trick. She now looks likely to head to the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland in November.

Her Timeform rating of 126 is unequalled among fillies and mares in Europe this year and cannot be bettered by any female racehorse in the world in 2022.

Owned and bred by Trainers House Enterprises, Highfield Princess is a daughter of Pure Illusion (Danehill), who has also produced G2-winner Cardsharp (Lonhro).

Night Of Thunder is enjoying an exceptional season which has been headed by Highfield Princess, from his first crop. He is also the sire of the exciting unbeaten G2-winning juvenile colt, Isaac Shelby, fellow juvenile Black Type winner Mauiewowie, and four-time Stakes winning filly, Rumbles Of Thunder.
