The Prince of Wales's Stakes


Race Name Grade Track

Prince of Wales's Stakes

The Prince of Wales's Stakes is a flat, Group 1 horse race that takes place in the UK. The race is open to thoroughbred horses of 4-years or older. The race is run over a mile and a quarter (10 furlongs) and is held at Ascot Racecourse in June. It is run on the second day of the Royal festival and is the most prestigious race on the card for that day.

The first Prince of Wales's Stakes took place in 1862 and derives its name in honor of the Prince of Wales. Originally the race took place over a distance of 13 furlongs and was open to 3-year-olds and above.

During the World War II period the race was not run and it was only reinstated in 1968.



Prince of Wales's Stakes Racecourse

Ascot

Ascot Racecourseconsists of two tracks, one for flat racing and the other for chase and hurdles races. The latter is a relatively new addition to the proud history of the racecourse, with the first National Hunt races taking place in 1965. Contrast that to the first flat race at Ascot, which was held in 1711! The Ascot racecourse was the brainchild of Queen Anne, and she sponsored the first race ever held there - Her Majesty's Plate - with a prize of 100 guineas to the winner.
