Prince of Wales's Stakes

Royal Ascot Day 2 Betting Odds with William Hill Online

The Prince of Wales's Stakes 21st June

Day 2 of the 2017 Royal Ascot Festival will take place on Wednesday 21st June. It is often called Prince of Wales Stakes Day after the feature race of the day. There are six races in total on Day 2, with other highlights being the Duke of Cambridge Stakes and Royal Hunt Cup. Prince of Wales Stakes Day is of course only one part of the five-day Royal Ascot horse racing festival, held at Ascot Racecourse, Berkshire. Royal Ascot 2017 will take place from 20th June to 24th June. The festival is one of the most important events in flat racing, holding eight Group 1 races throughout the week.

The opening race of Prince of Wales Stakes Day is the Jersey Stakes. It will go off at 2.30 (UK). Always a superb race with plenty of runners, it was won by Ribchester last year. Day 2’s centrepiece is clearly the Prince of Wales’s Stakes. The Group 1 race has been won in the past by star horses like Fantastic Light and Ouija Board, both of whom had great success in Britain and abroad. The 2017 running of the Prince of Wales’s Stakes will take place at 4.20 (UK) on 21st June. Another top race on Day 2 is the Duke of Cambridge Stakes. Formerly known as the Windsor Forest Stakes, it was renamed in honour of Prince William’s new title in 2013.

  • 2016 Royal Ascot Results and Review of Day 2

    A shock winner in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes was the big talking point of a thrilling Day 2 of Royal Ascot 2016. Adam Kirby rode My Dream Boat to victory, with the horse widely available at odds of 20-1 on the morning of the race. The win came after a disappointing ride by odds-on favourite A Shin Hikari, who limped across the line in last place. The first race of the day, the Jersey Stakes, went to Ribchester after a fine ride by William Buick. The Queen Mary Stakes was won by Lady Aurelia with Ascot hero Frankie Dettori in the saddle. The win suggested a promising future for Lady Aurelia, with perhaps more to come from the three-year-old at Royal Ascot 2017.

    To the delight of the Ascot crowds, Dettori rode two winners on Day 2. The second win came on Persuasive in the final race of the day, the Sandringham Stakes. The 2016 Duke of Cambridge Stakes was won by Usherette, in what was a masterclass in positioning from jockey Mikael Barzalona. The Royal Hunt Cup delivered a third win of the day for the mighty Godolphin stable, after Portage bounded into the lead inside the final furlong. The day belonged to Kirby however, who added the Group 1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes to his King’s Stand Stakes win a day previously.
