Travis bows to Queen Elizabeth
"Everybody's asking and we don't know anything," said Travis Armstrong
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (APE) *POSTED: 10:06 p.m. EDT, May 5, 2007--
For a few exciting moments, Queen Elizabeth II was just like every other racing fan Saturday at Churchill Downs -- chatting with none other than ticket master, Travis Armstrong, at the 133rd Kentucky Derby.
As only the sunjournal can report:
"Ticket takers and security guards said Derbygoers constantly questioned them about the 81-year-old queen.
Is she here? (Yes, she was.)
What gate did she come in? (No comment.)
Does she use a wheelchair? (Um, no.)
What color hat is she wearing? (Pink with cream, not that they'd share that information with you.)
'Everybody's asking and we don't know anything,' said Travis Armstrong, a ticket taker who'd been at the Director's Room post since about 6:30 a.m. 'I've heard she's supposed to be taken in there, but she's going a different way.' "
