Golden Moka, a 10-1 longshot, won the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes at Fort Erie Race Track Sunday.

Big Red Mike, trained by local horsemen Nick Gonzalez, was favoured to win 4/5 after taking the Queen’s Plate last month in a wire-to-wire romp but placed third behind Mobil Unit.

Jockey Anthony Stephen took Golden Moka to the lead early in the 1 3-16th-mile event. With the victory, Golden Moka earned the $300,000 winner’s share.

Golden Moka topped the six-horse field in 1:56.45 on a fast track. The field was reduced to six with the late scratch of Dark Cloud Dancer.
