Prince of Wales


What the Nation is saying about the Prince of Wales...

My Saratoga-Fort Erie Road Trip ’12 came to end in grand style on Monday with my first ever visit to the Canadian track. I found the 115-year-old race place, just on the other side of the border from Buffalo, to be nothing short of charming. I only hope my first visit there will not also be my last.Read More

I was three-years old in September of 1961, and still two years away from my initial foray to Fort Erie Racetrack with my father. "Pops" as I often called him was a regular there, so it was a natural occurrence that he was present and an eyewitness to a most peculiar event that transpired on Septemb...Read More

For the third straight year, the Queen's Plate winner will not participate in the Prince Of Wales Stakes. MIDNIGHT ARIA, who wired the field in winning the 154th edition of Canada's most prestigious race last month, will not be entered in the second leg of Canada's Triple Crown at Fort Erie on Tuesd...Read More
Anyone have a pick for the Prince of Wales?. Mine is Uncaptured, and hoping he can get the distance.

Hi everyone, back in 1980, in the closing seconds of the Olympic hockey game between the United States and Russia, in which the U.S. stunned the powerful Soviet team who had won nearly every world championship and Olympic tournament since 1954, announcer Al Michaels asked, "Do you believe in miracle...Read More

  • zatt · I have not handicapped this yet, Adam ... who is going to take to turf? · 989 days ago ·
  • Woodbine · I don't think there are a lot of questions with who will or won't handle turf. Most have been on and have handled it well in maiden or allowance wins. Obviously Pender Harbour has not. He's Kris s line on top and Northern Dancer on bottom. Even if he takes to turf, the distance or the regression may get better of him. Seawatch also a turf enigma. Woodman could go either way, no? · 987 days ago ·
While the Prince of Wales lost all its importance when the Queen’s Plate winning filly didn’t show her snout, one good thing did come out of the result. Pender Harbour’s victory allowed the chance to salute one of thoroughbred racing’s legends, almost 100 years later.Read More

  • timgsmith10 · What the Hell Inglorious. BOO · 1018 days ago ·
  • Woodbinemile · Couldn't have agreed more. This is a BIG slap to all of us Canadian Horse racing fans. As well as the American, and Euro fans who watched the Queen's Plate, and take an interest in our TC. A track such as The Fort REALLY needed this boost, but unfortunately the connections thought otherwise. To bad, because the POW was a HELL of a race this past weekend, and surely she would have beaten Pender Harbour, and Bowman's Causeway. · 1006 days ago ·
Let the Queen's Plate crew of Hippolytus, Check Your Soul, Pender Harbour, and Bowman's Causeway take all the bettor's money. I will be more than happy to take the horse who has a good race both over dirt, and the track, at odds of around 20-1.Read More

Draw day is today, at 2 p.m. the post positions will be drawn for Sunday’s PRINCE OF WALES STAKES, an event inaugurated in 1929 (although it has not been run every year). The field is a small one but the top 4 choices seem to have almost an equal chance of winning and the race tactics will be key.Read More
