Idyllic Prince Wins Prince Of Wales Stakes

Monday, 26th October 2009

Ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a group success when 7YO gelding Idyllic Prince (Scenic-Uma Princess, by Umatilla) scored a 1-length victory in the $125,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m) at Ascot in Perth to take this race for the 2nd time in 3 years, after also placing in it last year. Idyllic Prince (ridden by Jason Brown for trainer Jim Taylor) defeated 8YO gelding West River Charley (Serheed-Phornet, by The Fort) & 5YO mare Spirited One (Verglas-Voodoo Belle, by Canny Lad). Idyllic Prince now has 12 wins (also including September's Listed Farnley Stakes over 1400m at Belmont Park & August's Listed Goodwood Sprint over 1300m at Belmont Park, plus 2008's Listed Goodwood Sprint over 1300m at Belmont, as well as 2007's Gr3 Prince Of Wales Stakes over 1200m at Ascot & 2006's Gr3 Asian Beau Stakes over 1400m at Ascot) & 10 placings (including 2008's Gr3 Prince Of Wales Stakes over 1200m at Ascot, Listed Ruabon Stakes over 1200m at Belmont & Listed Farnley Stakes over 1400m at Belmont, plus 2007's Listed Grandstand Cup over 1400m at Belmont) from 35 starts for $597,300 earnings.
