PRINCESS NOOR — our Grade 1 winner and one of the top 2-year-old fillies in America — has been retired from racing following a soft tissue injury in the Starlet Stakes (G1).
“She’s a star and a very talented filly,” said owner Amr Zedan. “She had the race and most probably a few more G1’s to her name. Our focus now is to get her healthy and off to Kentucky to be the best mom she can ever be. It hurts, but thank God she’s well and retirement is the best decision.”
After a maiden-breaking “TDN Rising Star” score, PRINCESS NOOR found Grade 1 glory in the Del Mar Debutante (G1) by more than 6 lengths. Next out she took the Chandelier (G2) by more than 8 lengths over eventual Grade 1 winner Varda. In total, she won her first three starts by more than 17 lengths, two of which were in graded stakes company. PRINCESS NOOR retires with a record of three wins in five starts, and $363,500 in earnings.
