EPSOM, England, June 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It's Derby Day and Her Majesty has the favourite for the Epsom showpiece with Carlton House.
No reigning monarch has won the Derby since 1909 when Edward VII won with Minoru.
If Carlton House wins today Betfred will refund all losing win only single bets.
Betfred boss Fred Done,
"It will be fantastic for racing if the Queen wins the Derby and although I will end up refunding a lot of dough it would be fantastic for Her Majesty. It would be 'Hats Off to the Queen' if Carlton House wins. I hope her Majesty does not see this offer as treason!"
Carlton House, trained by last year's Derby winner Sir Michael Stoute, is very popular in Betfred's betting shops up and down the country, and of course on the web and the mobile betting application.
