After the pony’s victory in the Chelmsford listing competition, John Quinn will consider two very different goals for the Highland Princess.
The four-year-old child is likely to participate in one of her two prematurely ended competitions in Seven Furlongs, either in the Moët & Chandler International Heritage Obstacle Race held in Ascot on July 24 or the second. Team Sky Bet City of York Stakes in York on August 21.
The Highland Princess suddenly appeared on the scene while participating in the Buckingham Palace handicap at the Royal Jockey Club-and won a complete victory at the Queen Charlotte Race on Sunday.
“She is a very strong little mare. I am very satisfied with her,” Quinn said.
“She encountered a big obstacle in the Ascot game and she was also in York’s second group. We will wait and see. I haven’t really considered it yet.”
Quinn revealed that his two smart sprinters, keeping busy and free beaches, can participate in the second set of Paddy Power Sapphire Stakes in Curragh on July 17.
Keep Buy has run twice since they finished fifth and sixth respectively on the King’s Stakes of the Royal Council.
Seven days later, after Al won the award, Keep Busy reappeared in Sandown’s Coral Charge on Saturday, but left slowly and ran into trouble while running. She ended up lagging behind the arrival of darkness in seventh place.
“Something happened in the gate near her, she missed the break. Then she was trapped inside,” the North Yorkshire coach said.
“It just didn’t happen, but she’s fine, she will go to Curragh to buy Sapphire.
“Freedom Beach is great. The two of them may participate in the same game.”
