The Adrian Knox Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old fillies run over 2000m at Royal Randwick on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’ in Sydney.

Traditionally held on the first Saturday in April and also known as Doncaster Mile Day, the meeting is host to four Group 1 races and a host of quality support acts including the Adrian Knox Stakes.

Offering $200,000 in prize money, the quality handicap event was first contested in 1948 and known as the Princess Handicap.

It was renamed in honour of former Australian Jockey Club chairman Adrian Knox in 1987 after gaining Group 3 status one year earlier in 1986.

The event serves as a final lead-up for fillies chasing a spot in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) field run at the same track just seven days later and Colette (2020) was the last to do the double.
