Happy Derby Day Ma’am (as in jam)

The stunning Manduro, Bonfire’s sire

HM the Queen, celebrates her Jubilee Saturday at Epsom today. I hope she sees that handsome headcase, Bonfire (by Manduro), win. There is nothing so yawnsome as the Ballydoyle mafia winning all the classics and, so far, this season, their record is 3 out of 3.

I am not sure what the purpose of a jubilee is, never having had one of my own. Are we meant to be celebrating longevity, or just the fact that she hasn’t thrown the crown in? Does having a Queen make *a material difference to our lives, or has she provided decoration for our currency and postage stamps. It’s just a question, I do not have the answers.

This is a snapdat I took of Her Maj racing at Newbury a few years ago.

*Constitutional experts can consider themselves in the same category as the Ballydoyle mafia.
