Her Majesty The Queen Two-Year-olds (2yos) to Follow in 2020

Scrawling my way through the Horses in Training 2020, published by Raceform. It includes almost 20,000 horses, nearly 600 trainers, Jockeys' Weights, and Retainers.  

It is a decent buy detailing the majority of two-year-old horses for the upcoming season.

A handful of leading trainers didn't want their info published. Each to their own - although I will find the data one way or the other. (I've already got it).

One owner who isn't shy to detail her string of two-year-olds is Her Majesty the Queen. With a particular interest in the breeding of thoroughbred horses, the majority (if not all) are homebred.     

Her Majesty initially inherited the breeding and racing stock from her late father King George VI in 1952. In fact, the racing silks are the same as used by her father and great-grandfather King Edward VII. Her Majesty the Queen has achieved over 1600 winners, the only Classic she hasn't won is the Epsom Derby. She went close to tasting victory in 1953 when Aureole finished second (the year of her coronation). 

One of her best racehorses Dunfermline won two classics, the Epsom Oaks and St Leger Stakes (Doncaster) in the year of her Silver Jubilee (1977). 

Unsurprisingly she doesn't gamble but enjoys the outcome of a successful breeding match. Also, it is reputed she reads the Racing Post over her breakfast every morning.      

Take a moment to review the two-year-olds by trainer:

Good luck.
