royal ascot

The 95-year-old queen, a keen racing fan and racehorse owner, has attended Ascot almost every year of her seven-decade reign.
How can it be? The Kentucky Derby 2015 is upon us. The preps are done and the scores have been racked up to identify the 20 horses that will explode out of the starting gate next Saturday.
"This year, I saw someone in six-inch sparkly stilettos," she says, shaking her head. "This is a daytime horse race, not a nightclub." Rachel and I nod in agreement, as if the sparkly stilettos also offended us at this, the first horserace either of us has ever attended.
