Wayward Prince Crowned at Doncaster


Looking back on the UK horse racing results and payouts for the weekend, there was an especially interesting winner at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday (28 February). In terms of the conditions, the going was good and the weather was overcast and breezy.

Running in the 15:45 BetBright Grimthorpe Chase (A Handicap Chase), Wayward Prince stole the show by winning in the race with the largest prize pool, which was worth £32,490. But what really made Wayward Prince’s performance stand out in the Division 2 race is that the horse was a huge long-shot at 25/1.

Hailing from Ireland, the horse is 11 years old and comes from breeder M G Kilroe, with Hilary Parrott handling trainer duties. Of late, Wayward Prince has not been in the finest of form. At Exeter and Hayward, the horse pulled up on both instances. However, Wayward Prince returned to the vintage form of his youth on Saturday.
