About The Prince of Wales Stakes

One of the feature races to happen at Royal Ascot, The Prince of Wales Stakes, is a Group One contest which takes place on the second day of the festival in June and will feature horses aged four years and older.

Established in 1862, the Prince of Wales Stakes was named after the future King Edward VII. However, following WW2 until the investiture of the new Prince of Wales, the race didn’t happen. Upon its return to the racecard, the distance of the race was changed to one mile and two furlongs, and it was promoted to Group 1 status in 2000, which means the minimum participation age of the race was raised to four-year-olds.

Part of the British Champions series, the race has been won by horses of very high calibre, and many trainers target this race as a key point of the season for horses. There are only three horses in the history of the race who have gone on to win this race on two occasions, none of these coming in the most recent renewals.

The leading trainer in this race is John Porter, with eight wins, and this is matched by jockey Morny Cannon. However, more recently, trainer Joseph O’Brien has managed to land a win, as well as John Gosden and Sir Michael Stoute.

In terms of winning jockeys, it's Shane Crosse who won the latest renewal, following on from victories by Ryan Moore and James Doyle, with the former winning in 2017 and 2021 and the latter winning in both 2018 and 2020.
