Opening day, tomorrow, kicks off with three Group 1 races (i.e., the very best in the world): The Queen Anne Stakes, the King’s Stand Stakes (which is also the first British leg of the Global Sprint Challenge), and the St. James’s Palace Stakes. The horse Frankel, rated the best in the world, competes in the Queen Anne race….so it's a given that Frankel will win, right?! ....Or is it?.... Ahhh, only Fate knows!
Another horse to watch will be Black Caviar, from Australia, aka the “Wonder from Down Under,” who will run on the final afternoon in the renamed Diamond Jubilee Stakes (formerly Golden Jubilee Stakes). Frankel, the world’s top horse, has a record of 10 wins from 10 starts, but Black Caviar, the world’s second best, has garnered 21 wins from 21 starts! Wouldn’t racing fans LOVE to see a contest between those two horses! But, alas, it won’t happen. We’ll have to contend with seeing them win the individual races they’re entered in…. Or will they win?....
