Per the APR:

At 2 2nd Gimcrack S. (ENG)

# of starts/wins/places, earnings not shown. In fact, APR/BRIS says 'unraced'.

Thank you Miesque.
I think it is on the TBheritage website that it is written that he was a useful racehorse. However it does not say what he exactly did as a racehorse.

He can among others be found in the pedigree of this horse: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floribunda_(horse)

My two year old has him in his pedigree through this horse:

His Highness was a grey. He won 1 of 7 starts as a juvenile, placing 2nd in the Chesterfield Stakes (9 runners beaten a head by Seaway) and 2nd in the Gimcrack Stakes (11 runners, beaten 2 lengths by Cockpit). At 3 he started 7 times, placing 2nd in the Cambridgeshire Stakes (27 runners, beaten by a neck by Gyroscope). At 4 he won 2 out of 4 starts (the Newmarket Hcp, 7 runners, beating Diadoque by a neck,) and the Irish Cambridgeshire Stakes (17 runners). At stud he proved useful, siring winners of 333 races. He also proved to be a decent broodmare sire.
Hope this helps.

Bill

OK...from Ulbrich's "Peerage of Racehorses":

"HIS HIGHNESS (1936) by HYPERION (1930) ex MOTI RENEE (1928) by SPION KOP (1917); BL Fam. no. 2; branch of SIR HERCULES MARE. Grey. Winner of one of 7 juvenile starts, Newmarket's Prendergast Stakes (9 runners - by head, advantaged in weights) and runner up in Newmarket's Chesterfield Stakes (9 runners, beaten head by Seaway) and York's Gimcrack Stakes (beaten 2L by Cockpit), only placings; at 3 years, again from 7 efforts, runner up Newmarket's Cambridgeshire Stakes (27 runners, btn nk by Gyroscope, conc winner 4 lbs); in a 3rd season [4 year old] in 4 starts, winner of Newbury's Empire Cup (13 runners, by short head), the Newmarket Handicap (7 runners, btng Diadoque by nk) and The Curragh's Irish Cambridgeshire (17 runners, lumping 10st 7lbs, conc field min 8 lbs). A good winner-getter, siring winners of 333 1/2 races and who proved a useful broodmare sire."

Just from those numbers, I'd say he started 18 times, won 4 times and placed twice. (18-4-2-0).

Ulbrich's Peerage of Racehorses. (a great resource) was also where I found the info on His Highness. Richard Ulbrich is one of the breed's great historians.

http://www.ulbrichspeerage.net/

On this site, you can find out more about Richard Ulbrich, widely acclaimed thoroughbred author and researcher, and how you can subscribe to the database that we believe is the single most important source of information on the Thoroughbred!

The database that is the backbone of the website has been created over 30 years by Richard Ulbrich. Richard Ulbrich published his first book on the thoroughbred "See How They Ran" in 1981, his next in 1984 - "The Great Stallion Book", and in 1997 followed with "Richard Ulbrich's Peerage of Racehorses".

This database is essentially the online version of the book "Richard Ulbrich's Peerage of Racehorses" -- which had only 27,000 entries. The online version has over 50,000.

William "Bill" Lathrop, author of several papers, a researcher and pedigree expert in his own right, who has spent much of his life researching and delving into the "mysteries" of the Thoroughbred, said: "I think the site will be a marvelous resource to anyone who is interested in thoroughbred history and breeding. I am of the opinion that Richard's work will stand alone as the premier resource ever penned on the racing thoroughbred."

Bill

Thank you very much for giving me the link to that website. I had never heard of it but from what you tell me it sounds like I should certainly subscribe to it.
