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 2013 AAMI Vase was won by Savvy Nature from All Rigged Up with Pinstripe Lane third.

Raced as the 'Mitchelton Wines Vase' in recent years, 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.

Savvy Nature (2013) finished third in the Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes over 2000m at Randwick in Sydney befre scoring an easy win in this event and recent AAMI Vase winners include Super Cool (2012) and Manawanui (2011).

In recent times, Super Cool (2012) finished runner-up in the AAMI Victoria Derby while Lion Tamer (2nd in 2010) won the Derby after taking out this race. Rekindled Interest (2010) finished fifth in the Derby.

Extra Zero (5th in 2009) went on to run second in the Victoria Derby at his next start and Viking Legend (3rd in 2009) also ran third in the Derby.

Whobegotyou(2008) won both the Stutt Stakes and Caulfield Guineas before winning this race and he then ran second in the AAMI Victoria Derby the following week.
