Blue Norther Stakes
New Years Stakes
Road to the Derby
Year in Review
Drawing the posts with track announcer Daryl Wells, Olympic athlete Charmaine Reid, and Woodbine's director of racing Tom Cosgrove.
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.
