Trainer J.J. Atkins
Wonderful galloper of the early 1980s who always seemed to run into a champion. He won twice at two years but had to contend with the extra smart Zephyr Zip. Later he raced in an era which included the mighty Kingston Town who beat him into second place in the 1980 Cox Plate. Prince Ruling was also second in the All Aged Stakes and was beaten a lip in the Doomben Cup. However, he did win the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes, Tulloch Stakes, AJC Chipping Norton Stakes and the VRC Linlithgow Stakes. He later stood at stud.
