2014 Adrian Knox Stakes

As Amanpour went to the lead, Blake Shinn was content to settle Arabian Gold midfield where she enjoyed an easy run. Missvonn also ran in the first half of the field while Lady Cumquat was towards the rear. Amanpour opened up a gap on the field and was a clear leader coming into the straight but Arabian Gold had gradually pushed forward and came home strongly down the outside, with Missvonn also making a late claim. Arabian Gold handled the conditions better and scored a solid victory over Missvonn, and Lady Cumquat made good ground to take third place.
