A horse that Queen Elizabeth sold last year nearly won one of the most prestigious show jumping races at Aintree Racecourse.
The horse named Pied Piper sold for £225,000, according to a senior journalist.
The horse was demoted to second place after it was deemed to have interfered with another horse named Knight Salute.
The horses reportedly crossed the line together.
Commenting on the Pied Piper’s performance, a senior journalist revealed the price of the animal, saying, “I wonder if Her Majesty regrets selling it now.”
