    Background: QUEEN ELIZABETH WAS RECEIVED BY THE DUKE OF NORFOLK, SEPT 29, WHEN SHE VISITED THE EQUINE RESEARCH STATION OF THE ANIMAL HEALTH TRUST AT NEWMARKET, SUFFOLK, TO OPEN A NEW GBP40,000 SURGICAL WING.

    AFTER BEING PRESENTED WITH A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS BY MISS ROBERTS, THE HEAD SURGEON'S DAUGHTER, THE QUEEN CEREMONIALLY UNLOCKED THE DOOR OF THE NEW BUILDING. ON A TOUR OF INSPECTION SHE SAW THE MAIN OPERATING THEATRE AND THE STABLES WHERE ONE OF PRINCE PHILIP'S POLO PONIES IS AWAITING A MINOR OPERATION.

    HEAD SURGEON JAMES ROBERTS SAID THE NEW SURGICAL WING WOULD IMPROVE "BY SOMETHING LIKE 500 PER CENT" THE CHANCES OF RECOVERY OF HORSES WHICH BREAK THEIR LEGS. IN THE PAST MANY VALUABLE RACEHORSES HAD TO BE SHOT ON THE SPOT, AND ONLY IN EXCEPTIONAL CASES WERE ATTEMPTS MADE TO SAVE THEM.
