H.R.H Princess Haya of Jordan

Owner Profile

H.R.H Princess Haya of Jordan
H.R.H Princess Haya of Jordan was born in 1974 and is one of King Hussein I of Jordan's daughters. Educated in Great Britain, from an early age Princess Haya developed a liking for horses and became a very good show jumper. In fact, at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia Princess Haya represented Jordan at show jumping.

Like the members of most royal families, Princess Haya has also developed a passion for thoroughbred horseracing, and has owned some of the most successful runners in recent years. One of the most recent examples is her Jim Bolger-trained colt, New Approach, who in June 2008 won the prestigious 1 1/2 mile Epsom Derby at Epsom Downs in south London.

And her good fortune has not stopped there. In October 2008, another of Princess Haya's superb thoroughbreds, 3-year-old colt Raven's Pass, went on to win the auspicious and highly lucrative $5 million Breeders Cup Classic at Santa Anita in California. Like the Epsom Derby, the Breeders Cup Classic is considered by many to be the most important thoroughbred horse races in America.

After being named the European champion 2-year-old in 2007 and winning the 2008 Epsom Derby, New Approach was retired at the end of the 2008 racing season.
