Derby Day

This coming saturday the 4th of June sees the 232nd running of The Derby at Epsom. First run in 1870, The Derby is probably the most famous horserace in the world and is contested over one mile, four furlongs and 10 yards of what is probably the worst racecourse in the world.
This year’s race is of particular interest because The Queen has a horse running, Carlton house trained by Sir Michael Stoute at Newmarket. This is her tenth runner in the race, her first being Aureole in 1953 which finished second but this year looks to be her best chance so far of having a winner. Carlton House is currently favourite and should make it a sixth Derby win for his trainer. finished third. Better luck next time Your Majesty.
