  • Description

    The fluctuating British weather put on one of its rare sunny days when the Queen went to Goodwood on Thursday, July 31st.. This was her first outing since her illness began three weeks ago.

    With the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen lunched in the Duke of Richmond's box and later went to the paddock to speak with her jockey, Harry Carr, and her trainer, Major Boyd-Rochfort. As she left the parade ring with the Duke of Richmond, race-goers formed a land to the private enclosure to wish her well.

    Unfortunately the Queen's horses did not rise to the occasion-----Doutelle, rided by Harry Carr in the Goodwood Cup, could only manage fourth place.

    The big race of the day was won by Gladness, with Ranchiquito second and Clichy third. Apart from the Goodwood Cup the winner received a prize of ???3,413 sterling.
