Princess Posh Wins Gr3 Tibbie Stakes

Monday, 17th September 2018

At Newcastle on Friday, stallion Coolmore's champion European miler and former Blue Gum Farm shuttler Canford Cliffs (Tagula-Mrs Marsh, by Marju) celebrated a Group race success when 5YO mare Princess Posh (Canford Cliffs-The Baroness, by Viscount) scored by 1.0-length for trainer Kris Lees in the $160,000 Gr3 Tibbie Stakes (1400m) for fillies and mares, defeating 4YO mare Savatiano & 5YO mare Irithea. Produced at just the right time to win going away, Princess Posh was a $25,000 bargain consigned by Phoenix Broodmare Farm at the 2015 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale. Friday’s win, her first in stakes company, took her record to 7 wins and 7 placings from 21 starts for $391,020 earnings.
