South African jockey Glyn Schofield steered Princess Posh to victory in the Gr3 Yarraman Park Tibbie Stakes run over 1400m at Newcastle on Friday to give new Ridgemont Highlands stallion Canford Cliffs his eleventh individual stakes winner.

Princess Posh came from just off the pace to beat the favourite Savatiano (Street Cry) by a length with Irithea (Snitzel) three and a half lengths back in third.

Trainer Kris Lees said a stakes win was a worthy reward for the tough daughter of Canford Cliffs (IRE) and that it was great to get a black-type win for Australia Bloodstock.

With her first stakes win, Princess Posh took her record to 7 wins, 2 seconds and 5 thirds from 21 starts with earnings of AUD$391,020.

She was an AUD$25,000 purchase out of the Phoenix Broodmare Farm draft at the 2015 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

A half-sister to two winners, Princess Posh is out of the winning Viscount mare The Baroness who is a half-sister to Gr3 Millie Fox Stakes winner A Country Girl out of the dual Listed stakes-winner Verdict Declared.

The exciting Canford Cliffs (IRE), who shuttled from 2012-16, has created plenty of excitement in the SA breeding industry and now stands his first season at Highlands Part Of Ridgemont in the Western Cape for a fee of R30 000.
