Goodwood debut winner for Canford Cliffs

Harlequeen (Canford Cliffs) winning on debut at Goodwood

Goodwood was the scene of one of Canford Cliffs’ greatest successes and it was his daughter Harlequeen (2f Canford Cliffs-Aurelia, by Rainbow Quest) who stole the limelight on her first racecourse outing on Tuesday.

Canford Cliffs, who has made a sensational start with his first crop, won the G1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and Harlequeen looked a filly with huge potential when winning on her first racecourse start by four and a half lengths.

The Mick Channon-trained filly, who was bred by Richard Moses Bloodstock, impressed her rider Silvestre de Sousa.

“Harlequeen is a nice filly, big and inexperienced and should improve. I like her. When I asked her to quicken up she put the race to bed,” said de Sousa
