Hovdey: Hill Rise set high bar for U.S. invaders


California Chrome will attempt the improbable on Wednesday when he runs in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot. The race is a clockwise mile and a quarter around two corners. The purse of 525,000 British pounds converts to around $820,000. The current Prince of Wales is Charles Philip Arthur George Windsor, first in line to the British throne and the former Mr. Lady Di, who is 66 and at this rate may never be king.
