Romney's horses are for dressage and horse racing. His wife, Ann, uses them for therapy due to her multiple sclerosis.

Prince Harry Hands Out Horse Racing Prizes

Prince Harry Hands Out Horse Racing Prizes

We'd like to watch him ride!

The race, the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Surrey, is named after his great grandfather, so it was totes fitting that a beaming Prince Harry was at Ascot to make the presentations.

After standing around looking like a seski prince, Herny presented victorious jockey William Buick with the biggest honour of his career after he rode Nathaniel to victory in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Harry, who watched the action from the Royal Box, descended to the parade ring afterwards to present the trophy to owner Lady Rothschild.

Harry's model gf, Florence Brudenell-Bruce, did not escort her prince-boo.

If she has a problem with horses this polo player might have to drop her skinny ass!

Sorry… jealously is ugly.

Underdoghorse 'Ruler On Ice' Wins Belmont Stakes

'Ruler On Ice' Wins Belmont Stakes

Horse racing trick secret: the weirder the name the faster the horse!

It was an astonishing win in a race that was expected to be a rematch between rival horses Shackleford and Animal Kingdom, both of which had been competing to win a second leg of the Triple Crown.

Animal Kingdom nearly tossed his jockey at the start and fell behind early, while Shackleford came out of the gate strong and held the lead for much of the race.

But he lost it at the end.

The two favs fell by the wayside as Ruler On Ice was followed by Stay Thirsty and Brilliant Speed in second and third place.

Will have to wait for the third leg of the triple to break the now three-way rivalry.

Our money is on Bubble Poop Ninja Breath !!

Ok, that's not a real horse… but it should be, cause he would totally win.

Total Underdoghorse Wins Kentucky Derby

Animal Kingdom wins Kentucky Derby 2011

This year the race was better than the hats!

The faces of horse racing fans were in complete shock (under their fabulous head pieces) when a horse named Animal Kingdom won $2.2 million at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

A record crowd of almost 165,000 let out a mighty roar as John Velazquez, who only got the ride when his own horse was scratched and Animal Kingdom's original jockey was injured in a freak accident, surged into the lead approaching the shadows of the iconic twin spires.

Riding high on emotion after a bizarre chain of events led him to Animal Kingdom's saddle, Velazquez kicked clear to win his first Kentucky Derby at his 13th attempt.

Animal Kingdom, a longshot who started at odds of 20-1, was untroubled in his run to the wire, taking out the first leg of American racing's Triple Crown by 2 3/4 lengths.

The 5-1 favorite, Dialed In, could only manage eighth after being last in the 19-horse field for most of the mile and a quarter trip.

Horse Jumps Into Crowd

Filed under: Scary!Horses

Ouch!

Spectators were hospitalized after a race horse hurdled the wrong fence and plunged into the crowd at a steeplechase in Australia Thursday.

Banna Strand leapt into a crowd of about 50 people after veering off course at the 5,500-meter race in Warrnambool, Victoria.

Seven people were taken to hospital, including a two-year-old girl and an elderly woman after the horse jumped a three-meter high fence.

"There were people running everywhere and I could hear the screaming and a horse among all the people over there," an eye witness said.

We will never call horse racing boring again.
