The Queen visits Newbury Racecourse…& a fine win for Alan King
The Queen was at Newbury Racecourse for the second day of the Dubai Duty Free Spring Trials Weekend. She watched three of her horses race - gaining a second place on the score sheet.
Local Barbury Castle trainer Alan King scored a major win in Newbury's Mansionbet Spring Cup with eight year-old Chatez under William Buick. Chatez is owned by Mrs Peter Andrews whose colours were so familiar to Newbury fans with their horse Smad Place - a popular winner of the Hennessy Gold Cup in 2015.
