Adrian Knox Stakes

The Adrian Knox Stakes is a Group 3 quality handicap race for three-year-old fillies that takes place annually each April at Randwick racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales.The race is run over a distance of 2000 metres and worth $200,000 in prize money. The 2019 Adrian Knox Stakes was won by Aliferous from Amangiri with Maracaibo third.

With the advent of the newly formed The Championships for this year's Sydney Autumn racing carnival, the Adrian Knox Stakes finds itself on the first day of the two-day extravaganza, alongside the feature race of the day, the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap. The winner of this race is exempt from a ballot on the Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks for fillies the following week.

The Adrian Knox Stakes takes place seven days before the AJC Australian Oaks over 2400m at Randwick and gives three-year-old fillies a final hit out at 2000m in preparation for the extra 400 metres of the Oaks the following Saturday. The Adrian Knox Stakes is generally a race for more than handy fillies rather than the silk department.

The Adrian Knox Stakes has proven to be a more than handy guide to the ATC Oaks in recent years with Royal Descent (2013), Rena's Lady (2007), Wild Iris (2004) and Republic Lass (2002) all managing to claim the Adrian Knox Stakes & ATC Oaks double. Gust Of Wind (4th in 2015) managed to win the ATC Australian Oaks at her next start, while Candlebra (2015) & Miss Darcey (2009) both went on to finish third in the ATC Oaks.

A race like the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate on the last day of the autumn carnival at Randwick may also be next on the agenda for any fillies that want to take on the males, and Arabian Gold (2014) is the last galloper to claim the Adrian Knox & Frank Packer Plate double.

Aliferous (2019) ran second in a BM64 race over 1600m at Kembla Grange before finishing strongly to win this event for Newcastle trainer Kris Lees.

Recent Adrian Knox Stakes winners include Luvaluva (2018) and Walking Moment (2017).
