Al Kazeem Wins Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot (1)

June 19, 2013

Al Kazeem and jockey James Doyle won the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, the main race on the second day of England’s Royal Ascot meeting.

The five-year-old, an 11-4 chance trained by Roger Charlton, overhauled Mukhadram (14-1) in the closing strides of the race. The Fugue was third at odds of 13-2. Camelot, the 5-2 favorite, was fourth of the 11 runners.

The 1 1/4-mile race carried a top prize of 284,000 pounds ($445,000).

Doyle, 25, went on to win the next two races, with Belgian Bill (33-1) in the Royal Hunt Cup and Rizeena (6-1) in the Queen Mary Stakes. His treble success had combined odds of almost 900-1.

The five-day Royal Ascot meeting, west of London, is the richest in the U.K. with prize money of 5 million pounds.
