The Group 3 2017 Prince Of Wales Stakes is a 1000m sprint held Ascot Racecourse in W.A. during late October leading-up to the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

Run under weight for age conditions, the Prince Of Wales Stakes is open only to horses aged three years and above. There is $150,000 prize money at stake, which is a decent amount in comparison to most other races held in the west during the spring season.

The Prince Of Wales Stakes is one of two Group status races held on the day along with the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m). For this reason, and also it’s suitability as a preparatory race, the Prince Of Wales Stakes tends to attract some top tier local runners.

The Prince Of Wales Stakes is not to be confused with the Group 1 event held at Royal Ascot in England.

Because it is so early in the WA racing season, there aren’t really any reliable lead up races to the Prince Of Wales Stakes. Your best bet for studying form would be to look at non black type events under similar conditions held prior. Even so, it’s possible that a lot of the bigger talents will be first up or near enough to first up in this event.

Following the Prince Of Wales Stakes, horses tend to take a variety of paths including the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) run in late November, which is Perth’s premier sprint race.

The 2017 Prince Of Wales Stakes was held on Saturday November 4, 2017 .

Prince Of Wales Stakes History

The Prince Of Wales Stakes was inaugurated in 1969. Since then, it has largely been held at Ascot Racecourse, with the exception of 2003, when it was held at Belmont Park.

As the first weight for age race in the end of year season, the Prince Of Wales Stakes has developed a reputation for above-grade quality racing. It has over time evolved into a very important race to watch for form guidance.

Notable Prince Of Wales Stakes winners include Casshoney (1985), Pago’s King (1992), Century Blazer (1995, 96), Secret Remedy (2000, 01), Miss Andretti (2005) and Waratah’s Secret (2010, 11). Idyllic Prince has had a great run in this race, winning in 2007, placing third in 2008, winning in 2009, and receiving second in 2010. Prince Of Wales Stakes results since 2000 are listed below.

From 2016 the distance in the Prince Of Wales Stakes was decreased from 1200 – 1000m, leading to the shorter 58.6 seconds winning time of Rock Magic.
