The 2010 Adrian Knox Stakes will be one of the last filly-only events in the carnival and will generate a high tense affair once again.

The stakes are not just about the prize money for the starters as the winner is exempt from ballot for the Group 1 AJC Oaks held on the 17th of April later in the carnival.

Also racing on the 10th of April, as well as the 2010 Adrian Knox Stakes, is a plethora of Group 1 race, notably the Australian Derby (2400m), the T. J. Smith Stakes (1200m) and the Sires Produce Stakes (1400m).
