Queen's Granddaughter Has New Olympic Ride

A gift from the family of the late Sherelle Duke, who was killed when competing in a three-day event last August, gave Zara Phillips, Princess Anne's daughter, the 12-year-old gelding Glenbuck. This is according to an article by Camilla Rominey, Royal Editor, at the Sunday Express British newspaper, online at http://www.express.co.uk/printer/view/2709. Zara is the grandaughter of Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

Glenbuck is a talented eventer that should improve Zara's chances in the Bejing Olympics next year. He reportedly was moved to Princess Anne's Gloucestershire estate, where Zara has other horses in training, including world champion Toytown.
