Prince of Wales Stakes

Looking for early info on this year’s Prince of Wales Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

Prince Of Wales Stakes, Ascot

Run over 1,000 metres, the Prince of Wales Stakes is a Group 3 race taking place at Ascot Racecourse in Perth on the same date as Melbourne’s time-honoured Victoria Derby Day at Flemington and was previously held on the first Tuesday of November (Melbourne Cup Day) up until 1997. With a $150,000 prize purse, it attracts some of Western Australia’s best sprinters.

Starting out as a Principal Race, this race was upgraded to Group 3 status in 1979.

This race serves as a good lead up for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes held during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival. Barakey won this race in 2013 a year after his Winterbottom win of 2012, while the last horse to do the double in the same year was Miss Andretti (2005).
