Watch the World’s First Corgi Race: The Ladbrokes Barkingham Palace Gold Cup

Royal Baby betting stakes were raised as 10 corgis took to the track to help punters determine the name and sex of the next Royal Baby.

As our brits do know, the gorgeous Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William will be offering a sister to George. Her name will be Alexandra, well, that’s what one Corgi dog has decided.

In Central London, more exactly at Bloomsbury’s Bedford Square, ten beautifully fit Corgis competed in a race to decide the name of William & Kate’s daughter. Each dog was wearing a nice outfit, with a name printed on the vest. Five of the runners taking part in the race were male and five female.

The names that were seen were those that are rumoured to be considered for the royal baby, including Albert, Phillipa, Elizabeth, Boris, James and obviously, Alexandra.

The event was organised by Ladbrokes, the famous bookmaker and was captured in a beautiful video that we have on this page.

Alexandra came first with a time of 4.32 seconds, beating Camilla in second and Elizabeth in third!

Royal baby betting is booming and the arrival of a new heir to the throne is sure to see a record amount of wagers placed.

The real rumours and betting stakes favour Elizabeth, followed by Charlotte, and the last candidates include Mercedes and Sapesan at a huge odd of 500/1!

  1. If done properly, the dog breeding “business” should not be profitable, unless of course you are a puppy farmer. Is this a site for puppy farmers? By the way, I am a dog breeder, but I do it for the love of my breed, NOT for profit!

    1. Hello Sue, if you browse through our archive of articles, you will quickly realise that this is a website against puppy farmers.

      However, we (the editors and readers) believe that passion is not incompatible with business, and that profitable is not an insult, it is actually an encouragement to carry on producing great dogs.
