TORONTO - Amis Holiday, a rallying runner-up to Lexie Lou in the Queens Plate, heads a list of 11 horses nominated to the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes, to be held on Tuesday, July 29 at Fort Erie Racetrack. Shin-Soo Choo Jersey . The 79th edition of the Prince of Wales for Canadian-foaled three-year-olds will be televised live on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt. At a distance of 1 3/16-miles, the Prince of Wales is the only race in the Canadian Triple Crown Series that is run on a traditional dirt surface. The Queens Plate, a 1 1/4-mile Poly test is the first jewel of the Triple Crown which is completed by the Breeders Stakes, a 1 1/2-mile endurance test over Woodbines E.P. Taylor Turf Course, to be held on Sunday, August 17. Queens Plate winner Lexie Lou was not among the nominees, but trainer Mark Casse, who won last years Prince of Wales with Uncaptured, has nominated Matador and East Side. Amis Holiday, an Ivan Dalos homebred son of Harlans Holiday-Victorious Ami, started from the outside post under Luis Contreras in a 15-horse strong Plate field with the filly, Lexie Lou, leaving from Post 14. The bay settled near the back of the pack in the 1 1/4-mile classic and tracked the run of Patrick Husbands and Lexie Lou through the final turn before a thrilling stretch run. While Lexie Lou had a clear path to the wire, Contreras had to maneuver Amis Holiday to the rail to avoid traffic trouble, closing with intent to finish 1 1/2-lengths behind the winning filly. "I was really happy with him. I thought he made a tremendous run," said trainer Josie Carroll. "The filly came from right inside of us. You cant take anything away from her, she ran a great race." Amis Holiday breezed four furlongs in :50.20 on Thursday morning over the Woodbine Poly. "He came out of the Plate very well," said Carroll. "Hes going to go down to Fort Erie on Monday to have a gallop over the track and see the paddock. His final breeze will be back here at Woodbine." Amis Holiday will be making his first dirt start in the Prince of Wales, but the colt spent part of his winter at Oaklawn Park with Carroll before shipping to Keeneland for his seasonal debut when fourth in the Grade 3 Lexington Stakes. "He was on the dirt all winter at Oaklawn and he was fine on the dirt," said Carroll. With a record of 2-2-1 from seven starts and purse earnings of $423,460, Amis Holiday has been a consistent performer for his owner-breeder topped by a win in Octobers Grade 3 Grey Stakes at Woodbine. Carroll is hopeful the colt will earn Dalos a coveted Classic win at Fort Erie. "When you look at the horses that Mr. Dalos has bred, with that back pedigree of Victory Gallop (sire of dam Victorious Ami), he definitely sets out to breed a horse for endurance," said Carroll. Lions Bay, trained by Jamie Attard for longtime owners/breeders Martin and Vicky Earle and their sons, Nicholas and Jonathan, arrives at the Prince of Wales from a troubled sixth-place run in the Queens Plate. The Sligo Bay colt entered the Plate with back-to-back wins, but trouble arrived almost immediately after the break for horse and rider David Moran. "He broke well, but two steps out he stumbled and grabbed the inside of his front right foot and bent his shoe down about an inch and a half," said Attard. "It made him uncomfortable and David said he wasnt able to stride out like he normally would." "The filly ran a huge race that day and I dont want to take anything away from her. I dont think we would have won, but we think we could have been fourth. There were only 2 1/2-lengths from fourth to six in the Plate and we felt we could have been right there." Good news coming out of the race is that Lions Bay appeared no worse for wear. "Thankfully we came back to the barn and he didnt have a nick on him," said Attard. "We pulled the shoe right away and his foot is fine. We put a new shoe on him and hes training beautifully, so it seems to be a non-issue." Lions Bay will breeze over Woodbines dirt training track on Tuesday afternoon in his final Prince of Wales prep. "He did most of his preliminary training last year on the training track and hes had a number of works over it and he handles it fine," said Attard. "I understand that Fort Erie is a little bit different of a dirt surface, but weve breezed here in :47 and change, so he handles the dirt very well." Matador and Coltimus Prime, seventh and ninth in the Plate respectively, are also expected to make the short trek down the Queen Elizabeth Way for the Prince of Wales. Matador, trained by Casse for John Oxley, arrived at the Plate from an easy allowance win after trying his luck in a series of U.S. Triple Crown prep races where his best result was a fourth-place finish in the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs. Casse won the 2013 edition of the Prince of Wales with Uncaptured, the 2012 Canadian Horse of the Year. Coltimus Prime, a dark bay Milwaukee Brew colt, was part of the early pace in the Plate before fading. The Justin Nixon trainee boasts a record of 2-2-0 from eight career starts including an allowance score heading into the Plate. Owned by Cabernet Racing Stables, the social media savvy connections also attempted to make the Kentucky Derby with ColtimusPrime, finishing a good fifth in the Grade 1 Blue Grass at Keeneland before deciding to focus on the Plate. Newcomers to the Canadian Triple Crown experience on the nomination list include Ascot Martin, Bangkok, East Side, Lynx, Money Talks, Rhythm Blues and Smart Spree. Of that group, Money Talks, a dark bay Mobil gelding trained by William Tharrenos, seems certain to make the Prince of Wales field. Money Talks, under a patient steer from Jesse Campbell, toppled an optional claiming field in style on Friday afternoon at Woodbine covering 1 1/16-miles in 1:45.28. Making his first start since May 19, Campbell settled into fifth position along the rail with Money Talks and waited until the top of the lane to split rivals with an impressive turn of foot for a 4 3/4-length score. "Jesse just let him run the last eighth of a mile. He looks pretty fit right now," said Tharrenos following the race. "That little break really helped him. He had a two month break and in a couple works it showed in the morning that hes coming along very well. "I think well point there (the Prince of Wales) as long as he comes out of it well. We were really pleased to have that little break and let him come back to himself. He wasnt right the last couple starts, but we have him right now." Money Talks boasts a record of 3-2-1 from 10 career starts and has faced older company in all four of his 2014 starts. Tharrenos is confident the gelding will handle the dirt. "He trains well on it in the morning and I think this (result) will get him to peak right on," said Tharrenos. The draw for the Prince of Wales will take place on Friday, July 25th in the Fort Erie Race Office at 1pm. The Prince of Wales will be run on Tuesday, July 29th. First race post time is scheduled for 4:15. The Prince of Wales will be televised on TSN from 7pm to 8pm EDT with the Prince of Wales scheduled for 7:40 pm. Jurickson Profar Jersey .

The Thornhill, Ont., native, who is ranked 11th in the world, said hed hoped he would be ready when Canada begins its World Group first-round tie against Japan in Tokyo on Friday.SUNRISE, Fla. -- Ben Scrivens made the most of his first start in goal for the Los Angeles Kings. Scrivens had 20 saves to record his third career shutout and the Kings beat the Florida Panthers 3-0 on Sunday. Jordan Nolan had a goal and an assist. Justin Williams and Daniel Carcillo also scored goals for the Kings, who won their third straight game. Scrivens, acquired in a trade from the Toronto Maple Leafs in June 2013, made his first start of the season as regular goalie Jonathan Quick, one of the best in the NHL, was given a rest. Scrivens last shutout was on Feb. 18, a 3-0 victory at Florida as a member of the Maple Leafs. "You cant give enough credit to the guys in front. They played extremely well, and all I had to do was focus on stopping the puck and seeing it well," Scrivens said. Two of Scrivens three shutouts have come against the Panthers. "Ive been fortunate that its worked out here in Florida. It (stinks) that Im in the West now, Im only out here once a year," Scrivens said. Jacob Markstrom had 26 saves for Florida, which has lost four of its past five games. Nolan put the Kings ahead 3-0 at 12:28 of the third with a tip-in off a pass from Jarret Stoll. "Fortunately I was able to get the puck and shoot it on net and it went in," Nolan said. "I was able to get a quick release and catch (Markstrom) off guard." The Kings went ahead 2-0 at 14:55 of the second. The Panthers tried to get the puck out of their zone but it was intercepted by the Kings. Williams passed to Anze Kopitar near the goal line to the right of the net, then Kopitar pushed the puck back out to Williams. His wrist shot got pastt an outstretched Markstrom. Josh Hamilton Jersey. Kopitar has five assists in six games. Carcillos goal gave the Kings a 1-0 lead at 8:46 of the second. Mike Richards passed from behind the net to Carcillo in the bottom of the right circle. His slap shot got past Markstrom. Richards has four assists in his last four games. Kings coach Darryl Sutter was pleased with Scrivens play and his team in general. "He was sharp early. He made some big saves and handled the puck well, which is what we needed him to do. He looked very good out there," Sutter said. "Kopitar continues to be a dominant player for us." After scoring six goals in Fridays home opener against Pittsburgh, the Panthers couldnt muster much of an offence against the Kings. "Theyre a very big, strong-bodied team," Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said. "As the game wore on, we got wore down. The problem that we have is I think our hockey IQ dropped as well. We thought we could play a fancy game and you cannot play a fancy game against the Kings." The Panthers didnt think they caught a break by facing Scrivens instead of Quick. "We have no game where we can have a letdown," Panthers defenceman Brian Campbell said. "He played pretty good last year in Toronto." NOTES: Williams got his 500th NHL point with his second period goal. ... Kingsdefenceman Jake Muzzin was a healthy scratch for the third straight game. ... The Panthers faced a backup goalie in Scrivens for the second straight game. On Friday, the Panthers scored six goals against Pittsburgh rookie Jeff Zatkoff in a 6-2 win. ...
