There was cause for an early celebration 24 hours before the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when Call To Mind, owned by Her Majesty The Queen, finished third to Stradivarius in the Mansionbet Yorkshire Cup at York.
Apparently, the cost of the average wedding is £27,161. Call To Mind earned The Queen £17,754 for his efforts on the Knavesmire and it would have been £35,475 had he won his tussle for second with Desert Skyline. He lost that battle by a neck, the pair three lengths behind the emphatic winner.
Call To Mind then travelled to America and won the Grade 2 Belmont Gold Cup Invitiational Stakes but his career came to a premature end when he sustained a tendon injury next time, on his tenth career start, during the Qatar Goodwood Cup.
Unraced at two, Call To Mind won twice as a three-year-old – at Newbury in front of his owner the day after her 91st birthday, and then in the Listed Goodwood Revival March Stakes over 1m6f.
He is regally bred, by Galileo out of Albany Stakes winner Memory, and stamina was clearly his strong suit.
