The Queen's horses have won nearly £7 million in prize money over the past 30 years. 

Last year was a record-breaking year : she earned £557,650. So far she has won 451 races. 

Her Majesty is interested in horse breeding and is said to read the Racing Post over breakfast every morning.

Her most successful horse is Merlin trained by Michael Bell, who has won 3 out of 8 runs (37.5 per cent winning percentage) and earned a total of £21,768.

The Queen's horses are foaled at the Royal Stud in the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England. Once they finish racing, they remain in her care into retirement.
