Date set for 86th Prince of Wales Stakes

By Fort Erie Communications The 86th running of the Prince of

Wales Stakes is set to take place on Tuesday, Sept. 14, first race post time 1:00 p.m. The $400,000 Prince of Wales Stakes is Fort Erie Race Track’s signature event, for Canada’s finest three-year-old thoroughbreds running 1 mile and 3/16 on Fort Erie’s dirt track. The race is the second jewel in

the Canadian Triple Crown, between the Queen’s Plate (scheduled for Au- gust 22), and the Breeders’ Stakes, both held at Woodbine Racetrack. For the second year in a row COVID-19 has pushed the race from its traditional date at

the end of July to September. It is too early to predict if fans will be permitted to attend, or if COVID-19 will continue to impact attendance. “This event is our most prestigious race at Fort Erie Race Track, and we are committed

to running this historic race for the 86th year,” said Drew Cady, general manager of the Fort Erie Live Racing Consortium. “Although we were able to safely host a racing season last year, it wasn’t the same without fans. We hope that in the upcoming season we will once again be able to open our grandstand to our loyal fans, especially for our signature day.” In 2020, the one-eyed Mighty Heart (pictured, Michael Burns photo) was the Prince of

Wales Stakes victor with jockey Daisuke Fukumoto. Trained by Josie Carroll for Lawrence Cordes, Mighty Heart captured the first two jewels of the crown but was defeated on the turf in the Breeders’ Stakes. The last horse to win all three legs of the Canadian Triple Crown was Wando in 2003. Fort Erie Race Track’s 2021 season is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, June 1 at a 4:00

p.m. post time, and will run primarily Mondays and Tuesdays through to October 19. For more information about the upcoming season visit
