A published report said Queen Elizabeth II will be in Kentucky the first weekend of May for the Kentucky Derby.
The Sunday Times of London said the Queen will be the guest of William Farish, who owns Lane’s End Farm near Versailles.
Farish is the former U.S. ambassador to Great Britain.
The Times quotes the Queen’s racing manager as saying the Queen and Prince Philip will spend the mornings of May 5 and 6, 2007, visiting horse farms. Then they will be taken to Churchill Downs in Louisville after lunch on May 5, to attend the Derby.
The trip to Kentucky is part of the Queen’s visit to the United States to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of the British colony of Jamestown, Va.
