The AAMI Vase is a Group 2 event for three-year-old gallopers that takes place each year at Moonee Valley racecourse during the Melbourne spring racing carnival in October. The race is run over a distance of 2040 metres under set weight conditions and is worth $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2014 AAMI Vase was won by Moonovermanhattan from Atmosphere with Go Indy Go third.

Raced as the 'Dilmah Exceptional Teas Vase' for the 2014/2015 racing season, the AAMI Vase is held on the same day as the Moonee Valley Racing Club's most prestigious race, the Group 1 WS Cox Plate.

The AAMI Vase is commonly used as a lead up race to the Gr1 AAMI Victoria Derby for three-year-olds which is held one week later at Flemington on the first day of the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Run over a distance of 2040m, the same distance as the WS Cox Plate, the AAMI Vase typically assembles three-year-olds that may have previously tackled the Gr2 Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley or the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas at Caulfield, both over 1600m, and sometimes the Gr3 Norman Robinson Stakes held the previous week at Flemington over 2000m.

Whobegotyou (2008), Helenus (2006), Diatribe (1999) and Blevic (1994) all won the Stutt Stakes before going on to win this event the same year.

Three-year-olds who perform well in this race will generally continue on to the Victoria Derby the following week and the AAMI Vase is the last staying test for 3yo gallopers before the Derby. Efficient (2006), Plastered (2004), Helenus (2002), Blevic (1994) and Raveneaux (1986) all won this race before going on to win the AAMI Victoria Derby.

Moonovermanhattan (2014) finished seventh in the Caulfield Guineas over 1600m at Caulfield before scoring a comfortable victory in this event and recent AAMI Vase winners include Savvy Nature (2013) and Super Cool (2012).
