Princess of Wales's Stakes

Ascot Racecourse
A Brief History Of Princess of Wales's Stakes
The Prince of Wales's Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race for four-year-old and above thoroughbreds run over a distance of 1 mile 2 furlongs (2,012 metres) at Ascot Racecourse during the Royal Ascot meeting in June.

It was first run in 1862 and named in honour of the Prince of Wales, Prince Albert Edward. The original distance was 1 mile 5 furlongs, and the race was open to three-year-olds and above.

The race was absent from Royal Ascot in the period following World War II (when there was no Prince of Wales), and re-emerged in 1968, a year before Prince Charles' investiture in 1969, with a shortened distance of 1 mile 2 furlongs. It became a Group 1 race restricted to older horses in 2000.
