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.
