Queen Elizabeth II Says She Is Pleased Aussie Horse Races Continue

TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Queen Elizabeth II has expressed her delight upon hearing that horse races are still carrying on in Australia amid the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday night, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison got a phone call from the 94-year-old British monarch. He shared a post on his Instagram account with the handle @ScottMorrisonMP, detailing the Queen’s message.

Morrison remarked that the Queen called to check on the citizens of Australia. He said that she was quite interested to know their progress in battling the coronavirus pandemic and dealing with the related lockdowns. Morrison cited that the much-loved member of the British royal family was pleased to learn that the Australians were able to avert the horrible effects of the disease. Also, the Australian head of government confirmed that the Queen was delighted to hear that the horse races were still continuing in the country in Oceania. Morrison concluded his Instagram post by sharing that the head of state of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations had sent her very best regards to the people of Australia.

The message of Queen Elizabeth II about horse racing in Australia continuing during the coronavirus pandemic serves as an inspiration for the industry officials in the country. They worked hard to keep the sport going. The Queen is known worldwide for being a horse owner and a horse racing enthusiast, based on the report by Australian horse racing information and news website, Racenet. She has always appreciated Australian horse racing. Moreover, in 1954, the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes got its name in honour of the London-based royalty. On that day, she attended the event at the Royal Randwick Racecourse where sporting horse Blue Ocean was victorious in the competition.

Then, in 1988, the mother of Prince Charles opened a grandstand in Canberra which also got its name in her honour. Furthermore, she offered an opportunity for one of the awesome images of the late Australian Prime Minister Robert James Lee Hawke. The Queen was among the spectators at the grandstand that day, watching racehorse Beau Zam clinch triumph. Meanwhile, Hawke cheered on Bart Cummings’s charge defeating New Zealand horse racing star, Bonecrusher.
