Quick As Lightning
On this page:
Quick As Lightning was an American-bred, British-trained Thoroughbred racehorse and best known for winning the classic 1000 Guineas in 1980. She was one of the leading British-trained juvenile fillies of 1979, when she won two of her three races including the Hoover Fillies' Mile. In the following year she finished third on her debut before defeating twenty-two opponents in the 1000 Guineas. She never won again, although she finished fourth when favourite for the Epsom Oaks and was narrowly beaten in the Coronation Stakes. She was later transferred to the United States where she failed to win in three races before dying in 1981 at the age of four.
