The Prince of Wales Stakes was first run in 1929 at the Thorncliffe Park Raceway near Toronto, but this racetrack has since closed.  It wasn’t until 1959 that the race was moved to the Fort Erie Racetrack, having previously been run at both the Thorncliffe Park Raceway and Woodbine Racetrack.  The race was held on turf between 1959 and 1987 before returning to dirt.  The distances have also changed through the years, but the 9.5 furlongs that the race is currently set for began in 1988.  At this current distance the record belongs to Bruce’s Mill who posted a time of 1:53.80 in 1994.  To learn more about the race check out the Prince of Wales Stakes Wikipedia page.
