Today the entries were taken and post positions drawn for the 67th running of the Prince of Wales Stakes, the second leg of Canada's Triple Crown. A full field of twelve three-year-olds were entered including the first six finishers of the Queen's Plate four weeks ago. It is a very contentious field with no clear cut favorite. Queen's Plate winner TJ's Lucky Moon is the morning line favorite at 4-1, a huge change from his 82-1 final odds in the Plate. Anglian Prince, Forever Grand, and Ford Every Stream are nipping at his heels with odds of 9-2, 5-1, and 6-1 respectively. In addition to the Plate starters, four new players have joined the game hoping to be the spoiler. If TJ's Lucky Moon can win ths year, he will go into the final leg of the Triple Crown with a chance to win the $500,000 bonus for sweeping all three races.

Retired jockey Hugo Dittfach who holds the record for most wins in the Prince of Wales stakes with five, watches the draw.
The Prince of Wales Stakes, the premier race at Fort Erie, is run at a distance of one mile and three sixteenths with a purse of $500,000, a new record high up from $350,000 last year. Many excellent horses have won the race including Triple Crown winners Canebora, With Approval, Izvestia, Dance Smartly, and Peteski. Dance Smartly is also the dam of Scatter the Gold who won the Queen's Plate and Prince of Wales then just missed in the Breeders' Stakes in 2000. Her daughter Dancethruthedawn also won the Plate last year but finished second in the Prince of Wales to Win City.

Post time for the Prince of Wales Stakes is Sunday at 4:42pm ET at Fort Erie Race Track and the race will be shown live on SportsNet in Canada.

Below are the entries for the Prince of Wales Stakes. All horses carry 126 pounds.
