BHA Statement on first runner for His Majesty King Charles III

27 Sep 2022 BHA Features Financial/Political

BHA Chair Joe Saumarez Smith has today issued the following statement after the declaration of the first horse to carry the Royal colours in the ownership of His Majesty King Charles III:

“The loss of Her late Majesty was keenly felt within the racing and breeding industries given her lifelong passion for the sport, and so we are naturally thrilled to see that the horses previously owned by her will race on in the ownership of His Majesty King Charles III.

“Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II left an indelible mark on our sport and her legacy will continue to be felt, not only through the horses that will continue to run in the name of King Charles III but also those she bred who are yet to be seen on the racecourse in the years to come. We wish Educator and King Charles III the very best of luck on Thursday, and keenly look forward to further successes in those famous Royal silks on British racecourses.”
