Desert Hero Wins Royal AscotThe Royal Ascot has been synonymous with the late Queen Elizabeth II. According to bookie marketing tutorials and news sites, she won 24 times at the horse racing festival.

The late Queen was fond of horse racing and adored attending the royal event conducted once yearly. While her legacy in the sport will consistently be recognized, organizers were determined to herald in a new era under the new Queen. Desert Hero beat the odds to offer precisely that.

The horse was not among the favorites at odds of 18-1 but finished with a fantastic pace along the finishing straight.

King Charles will have additional opportunities to add to his winning pile with five royal horses due to race during the event, which closes on Saturday.
