QUEENSWAY ADDS TO LAURELS Oowie Filly Triumphs in Prince of Wales Plate at Thorncliffe Park— Track Heavy. TORONTO, Ont., June 3.— The third running of the Prince of Wales Plate, over one mile and a sixteenth, served as the principal race on the Kings Birthday Program that was decided at the Leaside course of the Thorncliffe Breeders and Racing Association before a big gathering today. Endowed with a prize of ,500, it was worth exactly ,910 when R. W. R. Cowies swift-running fiUy Queensway earned immortal fame to account for all of Canadas major racing prizes with her third consecutive triumph. Making her first start as a three-year-old, the Cowie filly engaged the best of her own parentage in the Kings Plate to score an easy victory, which was followed by a triumph in the Breeders Stakes at Woodbine Park and her latest victory saw her leading King OConnor, from the Seagram Stable, to-the conclusion of the mile and one-sixteenth journey. At the end Queensway, after following the pace of Easter Dandy, was under a mild drive to be victorious by a length, with Easter Hatter, from the H. C. Hatch stable, beaten a like margin as he saved the minor division of the spoils from Shady Well, a stablemate of King OConnor. Queensway left little doubt as to her superiority when she followed at the heels of Easter Dandy until seven-eighths had been completed, took command as the field moved into the stretch and F. Mann merely shook his whip at the filly to have her winner. King OConnor, which chased the winner home in the Kings Plate, covered much ground to land second, while Easter Hatter had little contention from Shady Well when the actual racing began. There was a change in track conditions for the Kings Birthday Program following the heavy rains of Thursday night and for the first time at the present meeting a heavy track prevailed. However, the fields were of good size and there was several popular triumphs for favorite players during the day. «
