Video du Jour: The Queen’s awesome reaction to Ascot Gold Cup victory

The Queen isn’t known for random acts of exuberance.  But when it comes to her ponies…

That last Royal Wedding was kind of a drag, too.



But take the horse-loving Queen to the races and suddenly…

The Queen was all smiles watching her horse, Estimate, gallop her way to victory. She is the first ruling monarch in the 206-year history of the Ascot to own the winner of the Gold Cup, which took place today during the Royal Ascot horse racing festival.

Long live the Queen.
