Royal Wedding is a Winner
However, when the horse came home a winner the bookies might not have been so pleased with the choice of name.
The horse was running in the Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer Handicap Chase at Fontwell as the royal nuptials were taking place.
The odds were 4-1 and the horse had, not surprisingly, attracted a lot of attention.
The Jockey taking on the regal challenge was Liam Treadwell. From the start the pair rode majestically and took a commanding lead. However, they were almost caught at the final three fences. Luckily they held on for victory and added extra impetus for celebrations amongst the crowd.
The win even brought a smile to the face of racing presenter Clare Baulding who posted on twitter.
‘Even better, Royal Wedding won the Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer Handicap Chase and was 4-1. Well done if you backed him,’
