Her Majesty The Queen has agreed to be the royal patron of York Racecourse, it was announced on Monday.

Both The King and The Queen have a keen interest in both racing and breeding, with the bloodstock interests of the late Queen Elizabeth II having passed into their joint ownership.

This latest role builds on existing links to the sport for Her Majesty, notably as patron of the National Stud as well as being president of the Ebony Horse Club, a riding charity in Brixton, London.

York Racecourse chairman, Bridget Guerin, said, “We are both honoured and thrilled that Her Majesty has agreed to be the royal patron of York.

“Her well-known support of equestrian sports over many years so very much appreciated by everyone involved. We have been privileged to host Royal visits in the past and very much look forward to welcoming Her Majesty back to York.”
