The second race in the Canadian Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing is set to take place tomorrow at the Fort Erie Racetrack near Toronto. This will be the first time since 1959 that the Prince Of Wales Stakes is not run on a Sunday. That said the change was made in order to reduce competition among from other races in the horse betting market.
The Prince Of Wales Stakes will be the only big international race taking place tomorrow, which means the eyes of the horse racing world will be on Fort Erie, for this 5:50pm post time race. CBC will be carrying the race in Canada and there is $500,000 in prize money up for grabs.
Midnight Aria, who was a 16-1 longshot, won the Queen’s Plate race back on the first weekend of July. But because the horse has been slow to recover from the shocking victory, Midnight Aria will be skipping the Prince Of Wales Stakes, which means there is no chance for a Canadian Triple Crown winner this year.

2013 Prince Of Wales Stakes Odds
Here are the odds as of today at SportsInteraction.com:
- Uncaptured – 9/5
- Dynamic Sky – 3/1
- Spring In The Air – 4/1
- Jagger M – 6/1
- River Seven – 12/1
- Power Phil – 12/1
- Niigon’s Glory – 15/1
- Rackman – 30/1
Uncaptured is the big favourite in this race. He did not race at the Queen’s Plate earlier this month and has rested since a second place finish at the Matt Winn-G3 in mid June. Uncaptured has gotten into a habit of finishing second of late however, with 3 second place finishes and one unplaced finish in his last four races. He has yet to win a race in 2013 and this will have to turn around at Fort Erie for his favourite tag to ring true.
Dynamic Sky is the second favourite at 3/1. He is the horse with the best finish at the Queen’s Plate of the horses entered in the Prince Of Wales Stakes (finished 3rd). Prior to that race he won the Plate Trial, actually beating Midnight Aria in much better track conditions.
I personally like Dynamic Sky to pull out this race and expect another second place finish for Uncaptured.
