Camelot wins Epsom Derby 2012


Oh Oh the Queen looks like she might have had her 50 bob on Bonfire

As part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations Camelot wins his second leg of Britain's Triple Crown - the Epsom Derby and of course it was another 1-2-3 finish for the grandkids of Northern Dancer. Queen Elizabeth II was on hand for the race. This sets up 2 potential triple Crown winners on both sides of the Atlantic.

  1. Northern Dancer continues to be one of the most influential sires in history. Of course he is back there on both sides of I'll Have Another, so the Belmont will the next one to watch.
