In no other avenue of her life is the Queen as relaxed as she is on the racecourses of Britain. Her passion for the Turf finds expression in her patronage of Royal Ascot and the Derby. Less well documented is the joy she derives from spending time with thoroughbreds and the myriad human characters in the sport.
Julian Muscat goes behind the scenes with all the Queen's men to bring to life this depiction of Her Majesty in her element. Interspersed with the history of her patronage of racing are numerous anecdotes of how her passion manifests itself in everyday circumstances. It enunciates the Queen's joy from the inside out. Beautifully illustrated with wonderful photographs.
