FORT ERIE, Ontario (AP) - Harlem Rocker won the $500,000 Prince
of Wales Stakes race Sunday to capture the second jewel of Canadian
thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown.
Not Bourbon, the Queen's Plate winner, finished sixth to leave
Wando in 2004 the last Canadian Triple Crown champion. The third
race in the Triple Crown is the Breeders' Stakes at Toronto's
Woodbine Racetrack on Aug. 3.
Harlem Rocker, the even-money favorite, took the lead coming off
the final turn and was followed by East End Tap in the 1 3-16-mile
race on a fast dirt track. Pronger was third in the seven-horse
field at Fort Erie Racetrack.
Harlem Rocker finished with an unofficial time of 1:56.46. Owner
Stronach Stables took the winner's share of $300,000.
