The Queen has a winner at Hickstead

One of Her Majesty The Queen's horses was successful today at Hickstead. 


Barbers Shop, owned by Her Majesty The Queen, won the final of the Tattersalls and Retraining of Racehorses Thoroughbred Show Horse Championship today at Hickstead. 

Barbers Shop was formerly trained by Nicky Henderson and won £143,000 during his racing career, with a total of eight wins. The 11-year-old gelding raced for the final time at the Cheltenham Festival in 2012, and has since been switched to the show ring under leading producer and rider Katie Jerram.

"I'm honoured to have been asked to retrain him as a show horse," said Katie. "He's only been out of racing for less than a year and he's now won five out of five classes."

It was another success for Her Majesty, whose horse Estimate won the Gold Cup earlier this week at Royal Ascot.
