Trainer E.R. Kirwan
Trainer Eric Kirwan always rated him the best of his five QTC Sires winners but also the most wayward. Prince Gauntlet won six races at two including the 1967 Sires, Sapling Stakes and Ahern Stakes. But Kirwan had no doubt had Prince Gauntlet not bolted on his rider in the 1967 Golden Slipper he would have won instead of finishing fourth. Prince Gauntlet later won the BTC Delaney Quality, Doomben Stakes, QTC Toorak Handicap and QTC Ascot Handicap (twice). He was also third to Prince Medes in the 1969 Stradbroke.
