Princessnesian (foaled in 1964 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse.

Background[edit]

Princessnesian was a bay mare bred and raced by William Haggin Perry.

Racing career[edit]

In 1968 the four-year-old mare became only the third female to win the Gold Cup, joining Happy Issue (1944) and Two Lea (1952).[1]

Breeding record[edit]

Retired to broodmare service, among the prominent stallions bred to Princessnesian were Buckpasser, Bold Ruler, Hail To Reason, Hoist The Flag, and Nijinsky. However, none of her foals achieved anything more than modest success in racing.[2]
