The Queen ponies up

Jockey Calvin Borel, who rode Street Sense to victory in this past weekend's Kentucky Derby has been invited to attend a state dinner at the White House in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. Borel's agent, Jerry Hissam, said Sunday that White House Social Secretary Amy Zantzinger had invited Borel and fiance Lisa Funk to travel to Washington, D.C., on Monday for the dinner hosted by President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness Prince Philip.

To mark this special occasion, it is rumoured that the Queen broke out the Royal phonebook for Borel's chair; so he can reach his dinner plate.
