Queen's Plate winner Wonder Gadot led from the wire to win a muddy $400,000 Prince of Wales Stakes on Tuesday night. The filly, a 2/5 favourite, was an emphatic winner of the second jewel of the OLG Canadian Triple Crown at Fort Erie Racetrack as heavy rain fell roughly an hour before post time. Although the wet stuff ceased after about 30 minutes, the dirt track went from fast to sloppy in the space of one race.
