The Queen Receives Disappointing News During Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

The Queen famously adores
horse racing, but unfortunately has been given some very disappointing news
about the upcoming Epsom Derby, which is set to take place on Saturday.

It has been revealed that her
Majesty’s only runner, Just Fine, was pulled out of racing. Just Fine had
been entered to feature in the World Pool Northern Dancer Handicap, staged
over the full Derby course and distance of one mile and four furlongs. However,
it was removed at Thursday’s 48-hour declaration stage.

Her horse Reach for the Moon
and two others were also withdrawn earlier in May. The monarch will also sadly
be missing the exciting event, and would likely to have watched her horse
running on the TV instead.

The Derby is thought to be one
of the Queen’s favourite occasions but it was recently stated that
she was struggling with mobility issues, and also sadly opted out of the
Thanksgiving Service, which took place on Friday. It has also been reported
that the Queen hopes to “pace herself” during the busy milestone celebrations.

The Queen’s love of horse
racing was even mentioned during the Thanksgiving Service at Westminster Abbey,
as the Archbishop of York had members of her family smiling fondly as he
compared her reign to a horse race.

The Most Rev Stephen Cottrell
said: “It is well known that Her Majesty likes horse racing. I don’t have any
great tips for the Derby tomorrow, but since the scriptures describe life as a
race set before us, let me observe that her long reign reflects the
distance of Aintree more than the sprints of Epsom. Certainly, less dressage
than most people imagine.”

He continued: “Your Majesty,
we’re sorry you’re not with us this morning in person, but you are still in the
saddle. And we are all glad that there is still more to come.”
