Highfield Princess, the six-year-old sprinting star trained by John Quinn, is set to make her comeback in the 1895 Duke of York Clipper Stakes next month.
Highfield Princess enjoyed a fantastic season in 2022, winning a Group One hat-trick with victories in the Prix Maurice de Gheest, the Nunthorpe, and the Flying Five Stakes, in addition to a win in the Group Two Duke of York and a fourth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Keeneland.
With plans to retire her for broodmare duties after this season, Highfield Princess is following a similar path as last year, starting with the Duke of York, followed by Royal Ascot, and beyond.
Quinn said: “I’m very happy with her. She’s been back in for a while, she’s in good nick and we’ll start her off at York in the Duke of York.
“She came back in towards the end of January, so she’s been in a while and York will soon come round.
“We’ll see how we go, but after York you’d be looking at Royal Ascot and on from there.
“With a bit of luck we’ll roll the dice with her as it’s her last year.”
