Queen’s horse celebrates victory, making 2021 one of the most successful years | Royal | News

The monarch’s horse, Fresh Fancy, won his race at Kempton Park, making this year the royal’s most successful racing season in a long time. Following Fresh Fancy’s victory on Monday, Her Majesty has reached 30 wins this flat race season.

Flat racing is held normally from March to the start of winter, with Doncaster’s November Meeting traditionally seen as the close.

This means the Queen still has more opportunities to beat her personal record for most wins in a season in the upcoming few weeks.

The Queen has also seen two wins in the jumps, bringing her total wins to 32.

Her most recent lucky streak was in 2019 when the monarch achieved 29 wins.

The Derby is one of the most prestigious flat races and, while the Queen has had a long racing career, first place has eluded her.

Her Majesty’s horses have come second, third and fifth in the famous race in previous years, but there are hopes that Reach For The Moon may be able to take the top prize home.

His mother is also owned by the Queen and won races a decade ago, but has since retired from competitions.

The Queen has won more than 1,600 races on horses she owns, championing all of the British Classics except the Derby.

The monarch has also won a French Classic – the Prix de Diane in 1974.
