King Charles Is Not a Horse Fan: Auction For 12 of Queen Elizabeth's Thoroughbreds

King Charles III is not much of a horse fan: He has prepared an auction for 12 of Queen Elizabeth's thoroughbreds, which brought the former British monarch a fortune in racing.

To reduce the cost of maintaining the monarchy, King Charles would like to sell 12 of the Thoroughbred horses that belonged to the royal stable.

The late Queen Elizabeth II had a great passion for horses as a breeder, apart from her love for the faithful corgi dogs, which have accompanied her since she was a child,

The Queen She has managed to earn several million pounds (around £500,000 in 2021 alone) and numerous major prizes, such as Royal Ascot's Gold Cup in 2013, won by Estimate.

The decision was confirmed by sources close to Buckingham Palace: "The King will maintain the tradition of the monarchy's presence at horse racing, but he does not have the same passion for the sport as his mother."

According to Sunday's edition of Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, 12 horses will go up for auction, bringing the total to 25.

Among other things, the highest bidders will be able to win ownership for Just Fine and Love Affairs, respectively the first horse to win with the new King and the last to win two days before Queen Elizabeth's death.
