Her Majesty has seemed to me to have aged suddenly - Prince Philip seemed more sprightly than she did at a recent engagement, I thought.

That is so cool! Its nice to hear that she was given an award for something on her own merit and not just because she is Queen. I really bet she's over the moon about it too!

Well despite buying the horse and visiting it, I don't think The Queen did much. The trainer and the rider deserve credit just as equally.

Oh most definitely! I just meant it was an award in an area where she would have gotten it regardless if she was Elizabeth or Queen. Its an area of passion and interest for her personally.

Actually, HM didn't buy Estimate, she bred her.

While the trainer and rider deserve much of the credit, I don't think I would downplay the involvement that HM has in any of her horses. Horses aren't simply something that she uses as an investment and lets other people do all the work.

She did as much, infact probably more, than most of the other owners out there. The trainer and rider got paid for their job. The Queen appears to be very knowledgeable about all her horses.

The Queen is known in the industry as one of the world's foremost experts in the art of breeding racehorses. She has encyclopedic knowledge of bloodlines and had she the time and privacy to devote more time to it she would always be among the world's leading breeders. She reportedly plans all the matings of her mares herself and personally names all the foals born. Estimate's career success is very much due to Her Majesty involvement. (One of my other, erm, diversions, is horse racing. )

I totally agree with Laura's post. Claire Balding just did a tv documentary this year about the queen and her horses. She is very evolved in the breeding and training methods. She got Monty Roberts, the Horse Whisper guy, to come to the UK before he was famous to show his techniques to her and the Queen Mum. They became instant converts.

To whom will Queen pass over her racing business, breeding stud farms and all.. Is Charles interested much in that beyond polo? I doubt William and harry are interested..not to mention Kate's "allergy"..
I think it will be good to pass off that entire setup to Anne's family..Now that Peter has also come into this field, both brother and sister can work full time on that..

I know, I do watch the programs as well. However, a horse can be bred to perfection and still ride like a pony. The rider and the trainer, IMO, someone who has followed, enjoyed, watched and participated in horse racing over the years, deserve equal if not more credit.

Thank you for the video clip. I love watching Her Majesty interact with people. She brings a lot of joy to those who meet her. I think the children that had a chance to meet her today got a memory of a lifetime. They talk to her with such ease. I think that the Duke got a kick out of the boxing demonstration too. Nice to see them both out and about. Her Majesty does indeed look lovely in the blue hat. The color suits her.

Her Majesty's smile lights up a room, and the one in the video is no exception.
