Date: 07/13/2005

Entries were taken and post positions drawn on Wednesday for the 70th running of the Prince of Wales Stakes, the second leg of Canada's Triple Crown. A field of only six three-year-olds were entered headed up by Wild Desert, winner of the Queen's Plate three weeks ago. Also back from the Queen's Plate are Ablo (4th) and Granique (6th). Three new horses joined in this time: Autumn Snow, fourth in the Charlie Barley on Queen's Plate day, Out From Africa, fourth in the Plate Trial, and Stephen's Gift, fifth in the Victoria Park and a maiden special weight winner last out. If Wild Desert can win again he will go into the final leg of the Triple Crown, the Breeders' Stakes at Woodbine.

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. Many excellent horses have won the race including Triple Crown winners Canebora, With Approval, Izvestia, Dance Smartly, Peteski, and Wando. 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 in 2001 but finished second in the Prince of Wales to Win City. In 2003, Wando won easily en route to his Triple Crown triumph while last year A Bit O'Gold won as part of his campaign that won him the 3-year-old championship for 2004.

Post time for the Prince of Wales Stakes is Sunday at 5:08pm ET at Fort Erie Race Track and the race will be shown live on The Score in Canada.
