Could the Queen Reign Supreme in the 232nd Derby?
If the colt succeeds it will be the first time in more than a century that the Derby winner has worn the colours of the Monarch.
The last time the winning horse was from the stable of the Sovereign was in 1909, when Minor rode to glory for King Edward VII.
Our current Queen has attempted to replicate victory at the Derby on nine occasions, but has so far failed to enter the winner’s circle.
Now, as spectators look forward to one of the highlights of the racing calendar, eyes are turning to Carlton House, with many believing the Clot could fulfil regal expectations.
Interest in Carlton House has grown at a canter since he claimed victory at York’s Dante Stakes earlier this month. Although his famous owner guarantees a certain amount of attention, racing experts believe he has a strong chance of taking the crown at this year’s Derby.
